The General in his Labyrinth is the compelling tale of Simon Bolivar, a hero who has been forgotten and whose power is fading, retracing his steps down the Magdalena River by the Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez, author of One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. 'It was the fourth time he had travelled along the Magdalena, and he could not escape the impression that he was retracing the steps of his life' At the age of forty-six General Simon Bolivar, who drove the Spanish from his lands and became the Liberator of South America, takes himself into exile. He makes a final journey down the Magdalene River, revisiting the cities along its shores, reliving the triumphs, passions and betrayals of his youth. Consumed by the memories of what he has done and what he failed to do, Bolívar hopes to see a way out of the labyrinth in which he has lived all his life. . .. 'An exquisite writer, wise, compassionate and extremely funny' Sunday Telegraph 'An imaginative writer of genius' Guardian 'The most important writer of fiction in any language' Bill Clinton

AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN eBOOK! General Simon Bolivar, “the Liberator” of five South American countries, takes a last melancholy journey down the Magdalena River, revisiting cities along its shores, and reliving the triumphs, passions, and betrayals of his life. Infinitely charming, prodigiously successful in love, war and politics, he still dances with such enthusiasm and skill that his witnesses cannot believe he is ill. Aflame with memories of the power that he commanded and the dream of continental unity that eluded him, he is a moving exemplar of how much can be won—and lost—in a life.

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

'César Montero was dreaming about elephants. He'd seen them at the movies on Sunday . . . ' Only moments later, César is arrested by police who clear the crowds away from the man he has just killed. But César is not the only man riled the rumours spread in his Colombian hometown - under the covers of darkness, someone creeps through the streets sticking malicious posters to walls and doors. Each night the respectable towns-folk retire to their beds fearful that they will be the subject of the following morning's lampoon's. As paranoia seeps through the town and the delicate veil of tranquilly begins to slip, can the perpetrator be uncovered before accusation and violence leave the inhabitants' sanity in tatters?
