it was amazing
Read in December, 2008

who am i to argue with susan sontag, who called this one of the "great masterpieces of 20th century world literatre"? or gabriel garcia marquez, who reportedley has commited it to memory? (a wonderful notion, even if, in fact, a fiction). i won't. it is indeed a quite spectacular, mystical and poetic mediation on death, of a town, of a family, and of many individual souls. the edition including the photographs of josephine sacabo adds an extraordinary visual aspect.
