GARCÍA MÁRQUEZ, Gabriel
One Hundred Years of Solitude
NY, Harper & Row, 1970. The first American edition of his masterwork, one of the most important novels of the century, which introduced magical realism to a wide audience and helped bring the boom in Latin American literature to this country. At the end of the 1970s this book was voted by the editors of The New York Times Book Review to be not only the best book published in the last ten years but the one most likely to still be read and still be important one hundred years hence. Garcia Marquez was awarded the Nobel Prize, among countless other literary awards. A fine copy in a second issue dust jacket that is very near fine, with just light shelf wear at the heel.
