Strange Pilgrims by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Strange PilgrimsThis is a marvelous book of stories, mostly about Latin Americans living in Europe. There is that tell-tale sense that we are in a world not quite like the everyday, but the magical reality element is subtle, a mood only, a feeling.

There is quite a variety of events, situations, and characters. Especially interesting is the “Prologue: Why Twelve, Why Stories, Why Pilgrims” where Marquez describes the process of creaton.

For the shimmering summer heat or a misty gray day, this is a wonderful choice to carry you away.
