From the Nobel Prize-winning author of "One Hundred Years of Solitude"
comes a masterly evocation of an unrequited passion so strong that it
binds three people's lives together for more than fifty years. In the
story of Florentino Ariza, who waits more than half a century to declare
his undying love to the beautiful Fermina Daza, whom he lost to Dr.
Juvenal Urbino so many years before, Garcia Marquez has created a
vividly absorbing fictional world, as lush and dazzling as a dream and
as real and immediate as our own deepest longings.
