A collection of early Marquez stories that includes his very first novel, *Leaf Storm*. I actually prefer later Marquez, when his style became clearer and crisper, but almost anything by this author is worth reading. *Leaf Storm* is a dense multi-layered work told from many differing viewpoints that concerns a mysterious doctor who arrives in Macondo one day and never leaves. Other stories in this volume include the fabulous 'Last Voyage of the Ghost Ship', perhaps the best story in this book, and 'Nabo', one of his very first stories.
