Staff Reviews


I am a hopeless and dedicated romantic who believes in beauty and kindness above all things. Magical realism + florid language + the knowledge that your true love is worth waiting for, no matter what the battles ahead. This book is as timely as it ever was.

— Jeremy P. -- Director of Buying

Description


"A love story of astonishing power." - Newsweek 

The International Bestseller and modern literary classic by Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez

In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina eventually chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years in 622 affairs--yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last, and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.
