Publisher's Summary

La inspiración para escribir este libro le llegó a García Márquez con una insólita noticia que tuvo que cubrir como periodista. El 26 de octubre de 1949 el reportero Gabriel García Márquez fue enviado al antiguo convento de Santa Clara, que iba a ser demolido para edificar sobre él un hotel de cinco estrellas, a presenciar el vaciado de las criptas funerarias y a cubrir la noticia. Se exhumaron los restos de un virrey del Perú y su amante secreta, un obispo, varias abadesas, un bachiller de artes y una marquesa. Pero la sorpresa saltó al destapar la tercera hornacina del altar mayor: se desparramó una cabellera de color cobre, de veintidós metros y once centímetros de largo, perteneciente a una niña. En la lápida a penas se leía el hombre: Sierva María de Todos los Ángeles. "Mi abuela me contaba de niño la leyenda de una marquesita de doce años cuya cabellera le arrastraba como una cola de novia, que había muerto del mal de rabia por el mordisco de un perro, y era venerada en los pueblos del Caribe por sus muchos milagros. La idea de que esa tumba pudiera ser la suya fue mi noticia de aquel día, y el origen de este libro." Gabriel García Márquez A.S. Byatt dijo... "Una proeza brillante y conmovedora."

    "Meeting a old friend with his language"

    I have read this book in 1995 in Italian, and I became fan of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. He is my preferred author for fiction books, and "Del Amor y Otros Demonios" is one of his best ones. It starts good, and gets better and better ending in a sort of poetry in prose. In Spanish, it is difficult to understand, but it adds the beautiful musicality of the original language.

    "Interesting and well read, but not Marquez best."

    Interesting and well read, but not Marquez best novel. I would advise to start with Cien anos de soledad or Cronica de una muerte anunciada.

    "Buena historia y excelente narracion"
    Where does Del amor y otros demonios [Love and Other Demons] rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Como es de esperarse, buena historia.


    What does Carlos Manuel Vesga bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    El narrador tiene una voz que pareciera estar echa con el fin de narrar historias de Marquez. He escuchado varios leidos por Vesga; una delicia!
