Reviews

"Contains enough tenderness and beauty to recommend it to García Márquez's many fans." --Wall Street Journal

"Far more than a coda to a magnificent career . . . Anne McLean's marvelous rendering of García Márquez's posthumous Until August continues the tradition, immersing us in the dreamy richness of the author's fictional worlds, amid characters pummeled by the demands of marriage, family and the dead . . . McLean's nuanced translation harkens back to the maestro's canonical novels while evoking, in a composition as tight as a Rembrandt portrait, the ache of human need." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"García Márquez should be read because he is so influential a writer, one who remodelled his country's perception of itself and reshaped its literature and that of the wider world . . . Yet more than this, unlike so many other 'great writers, ' his books are enjoyable. Inventive storytelling comes with indelible characters and arresting images served up with episodes of sharp psychological acuity . . . Love--ecstatic, forbidden, transgressive and especially between older people--is one of his great subjects . . . Until August is inventively enjoyable and working to its surprising, pleasing ending. I read it straight through in one sitting, then got up the next day and did it again." --The Times (London)
