"A rich, commodious novel whose narrative power is matched only by its generosity of vision." --The New York Times"A love story of astonishing power and delicious comedy . . . humane, richly comic, almost unbearably touching and altogether extraordinary." --Newsweek"The greatest luxury, as in all of Garcï¿½a Mï¿½rquez's books, is the eerie, entirely convincing suspension of the laws of reality . . . the agelessness of the human story as told by one of this century's most evocative writers." --Anne Tyler, Chicago Sun-Times Book Week"Revolutionary in daring to suggest that vows of love made under a presumption of immortality--youthful idiocy, to some--may yet be honored, much later in life when we ought to know better, in the face of the undeniable. . . . A shining and heartbreaking book." --Thomas Pynchon, The New York Times Book Review
