One Hundred Years of Solitude

I’m almost certain that most people have heard of this book or at least about the author, Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It seems pointless to write yet another review out of thousands already available on the web, or outline facts about Marquez that could be easily looked up on Wikipedia (however I do recommend his page, it’s a captivating read). 688 more words

until I couldn’t block
views of past sunsets
or make sense
of the land.
