An enchanting new collection of twenty-nine short stories from Nobel Prize–winning author Gabriel García Márquez, a master storyteller who “forces upon us at every page the wonder and extravagance of life” (New York Review of Books)

Spanning more than two decades, this collection combines humor, history, and mysticism to tell stories about the frightfully poor and outrageously rich, lost opportunities and present joys, memories, illusions, death, and other themes that resound throughout García Márquez’s fiction.

Stories include:

“The Third Resignation”

“Tubal-Cain Forges a Star”
