This thought-provoking work delves into American history and presents a powerful new framework for understanding the nation's current crisis.

Сто лет одиночества
Gabriel Garcia Marquez - 2003-06-24 (впервые опубликовано в 1967)
Рейтинг Goodreads
Одна из величайших книг ХХ века. Странная, поэтичная, причудливая история города Макондо, затерянного где-то в джунглях, – от сотворения до упадка. История рода Буэндиа – семьи, в которой чудеса столь повседневны, что на них даже не обращают внимания.

В нем кипят необычайные страсти – и происходят невероятные события. Однако эти невероятные события снова и снова становятся своеобразным "волшебным зеркалом", сквозь которое читателю является подлинная история Латинской Америки…
