Collected here are twenty six of Gabriel Garcia Maruez's most brilliant and enchanting short stories presented in the chronological order of their publication in Spanish from thre. Maruez is pure magic It s been a long time since I ve read him except for the novella No One Writes to the Colonel two years back so this was in effect a reintroduction to his work And the enchantment has not fadedMaruez resembles three of my favourite authors William Faulkner Franz Kafka and Ernest Hemingway His decadent town of Macondo where most of the stories happen in a connected universe owes much to Faulkner s Yoknapatawpha County And his prose moving on in sentence after impressionistic sentence without a pause for breath so that you get lost in its cadence without caring for its meaning is pure Faulkner The heartbeat of his fictitious universe soon starts melding into that of the reader and he she sees hears smells touches and tastes through the author s creationsBut unlike Faulkner Maruez moves effortlessly into fantasy without advertising the fact like Gregor Samsa in Kafka s The Metamorphosis his characters can find themselves in any weird situation in fact Maruez has openly admitted Kafka s influence They die live move across time and space get transformed into ghosts and spirits and involved in myriad other weird situations in the space of a few pagesBut in some stories the author suddenly drops all his flowery phrases and parabolic descriptions and goes for a hard bitten narrative where life and death walk the streets of the somnolent Latin American towns Here he resembles Hemingway with his spare prose and hard hitting plotlinesThe book is a compendium of three collections Eyes of a Blue Dog Big Mama s Funeral and The Incredible and Sad Tale of Innocent Erendira and Her Heartless Grandmother Of these the first one contains mostly surrealist pieces which reads like prose poems than stories except for The Woman Who Came at Six O Clock a classic tale in the Hemingway mould about a woman who may have committed a murder My favourite from this collection is Monologue of Isobel Watching It Rain in Macondo about a young woman whose sense of existence starts slowly dissolving in incessant rain I experienced it recently in KeralaThe title story Big Mama s Funeral is undoubtedly the star of the second collection By delineating the death of a matriarch and its aftermath it attains the level of the mythological in this it foreshadows The Autumn of the Patriarch I felt It also contains many Hemingway esue tales Tuesday Siesta There Are No Thieves in This Town Balthazar s Marvelous Afternoon One of These Days all filled with a sense of fatalism and uiet brutality The third collection contains two of my favourite fables A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings about an aged and destitute angel who falls down to earth and becomes a village curiosity and The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World about a corpse which becomes the icon of a fishing community Innocent Erendira is a frightening fairy tale about a young prepubescent girl cruelly exploited by her grandmother a rehash of the evil stepmother trope but much malignant Every fairy tale motif is inverted here Almost all the tales in this collection are surreal and engrossingAn exuisite collection PS A suggestion if you are new to Maruez don t try to get the stories Most of the time they may not make logical sense Just get lost in the telling You will enjoy it If you don t then maybe Maruez is not for you How Julian and Nigel Turned Each Other Gay (Inadvertently), or So
