Strange Pilgrims is a collection of unforgettable stories about distinctive South American individuals in Europe from the Nobel laureate Gabriel Garca Marquez author of One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. 'The first thing Senora Prudencia Linero noticed when she reached the port of Naples was that it had the same smell as the port of Riohacha' The twelve stories here tell of Latin Americans adrift in Europe: a bereaved father in Rome for an audience with the Pope carries a box shaped like a cello case; an aging streetwalker waits for death in Barcelona with a dog trained to weep at her grave; a panic-stricken husband takes his wife to a Parisian hospital to treat a cut and never sees her again. Combining terror and nostalgia, surreal comedy and the poetry of the commonplace, Strange Pilgrims is a triumph of storytelling by our most brilliant writer. 'Celebratory and full of strange relish at life's oddness, the stories draw their strength from Marquez's generous feel for character, good and bad, boorish and innocent' William Boyd 'The most important writer of fiction in any language' Bill Clinton 'Often touching, often funny, always unexpected, the experience is as enriching as travel itself' New Statesman

'The first thing Señora Prudencia Linero noticed when she reached the Port of Naples was that it had the same smell as the Port of Riohacha' Their distant, nostalgic memories of home, their sense of anonymity in a foreign land, the terrifying pang of vulnerability they feel as they step over the threshold into an alien world . . . Márquez's strange pilgrims - the ageing prostitute preparing for death by teaching her dogs to weep at her grave, the panicked husband scared for the life of his injured wife, the old man who allows his mind to wander on a long-haul flight from Paris - experience with all his humour, warmth and colour what it is to be a Latin American adrift in Europe or, indeed, any outsider living far from home. 'Celebratory and full of strange relish at life's oddness. The stories draw their strength from Márquez's generous feel for character, good and bad, boorish and innocent.' William Boyd 'Often touching, often funny, always unexpected, the experience is as enriching as travel itself.' New Statesman 'The most important writer of fiction in any language.' Bill Clinton

Every book tells a story . . . And the 70 titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth and quality that formed part of the original Penguin vision in 1935 and that continue to define our publishing today. Together, they tell one version of the unique story of Penguin Books. Admired by millions across the world, Gabriel Garcia Marquez first came to prominence as an imaginative writer of genius with his fantastical novel One Hundred Years of Solitude , published by Penguin in 1972. Alternately enchanting and disconcerting, the four tales in this volume describe the frailty of humanity and the bewitching force of the imagination, in a world where the lines between reality and dream are hopelessly blurred.

Collected Stories brings together many of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's spellbinding short stories, each brimming with a blend of the surreal, the magical, and the everyday that Nobel-Prize-winner and author of One Hundred Years of Solitude Marquez is known for. Sweeping through crumbling towns, travelling fairs and windswept ports, Gabriel Garcia Marquez introduces a host of extraordinary characters and communities in his mesmerizing tales of everyday life: smugglers, bagpipers, the President and Pope at the funeral of Macondo's revered matriarch; a every old angel with enormous wings, stranded in a young couple's back garden; a town plagued by dying birds that fall from the sky and an awestruck village captivated by a beautiful drowned sailor. Teeming with the magical oddities for which his novels are loved, Marquez's stories are a delight. 'These stories abound with love affairs, ruined beauty, and magical women. It is essence of Marquez' Guardian 'Of all the living authors known to me, only one is undoubtedly touched by genius: Gabriel Garcia Marquez' Sunday Telegraph 'It becomes more and more fun to read. It shows what "fabulous" really means' Time Out

This fascinating collection of essays and articles shows how Latin Americans travels and residency abroad helped them re-examine their own origins and perceptions of their homeland. Latin Americans traveled both purposefully and frequently in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Strange Pilgrimages reveals their experiences in Europe and the United States, and explores their power to shape opinions and bring outside influence back to Latin America. This new book analyzes Latin Americans; longstanding attraction to and interest in other cultures as barometers of their own progress. In addition, Strange Pilgrimages examines the invention of tradition, cultural practice, and identity formation among nation-states. A combination of articles and primary sources provides readers with both informed analysis of the experiences of Latin American travellers and entertaining first-hand accounts from the travellers and exiles themselves. These travellers were a diverse group that included artists, diplomats, political exiles, athletes, dilettantes, and more. Readers will learn that Latin Americans came to understand their homelands better and in fact helped to define their own countries; identities through their experiences traveling and living abroad.

The cowboys, strippers, labourers and magicians of Pilgrims are all on their way to being somewhere, or someone, else. Some are browbeaten and world-weary, others are deluded and naïve, yet all seek companionship as fiercely as they can. A tough East Coast girl dares a western cowboy to run off with her; a matronly bar owner falls in love with her nephew; an innocent teenager falls hopelessly for the local bully's sister. These are tough heroes and heroines, hardened by their experiences, who struggle for their epiphanies. Yet hope is never far away and though they may act blindly, they always act bravely. Sharply drawn and tenderly observed, Pilgrims is filled with Gilbert's inimitable humour and warmth.
