“…Macondo oozes, reeks and burns even when it is most tantalizing and entertaining. It is a place flooded with lies and liars and yet it spills over with reality. Lovers can idealize each other into bodiless spirits, howl with pleasure in their hammocks or, as in one case, smear themselves with peach jam and roll naked on the front porch…” ~ ROBERTKIELY

Put One Hundred Years of Solitude on your AllConsuming list and I won’t kill you.
