Reviews

"For Garci a Ma rquez the world contains mysteries that we need and can easily live with, but also miracles that we cannot understand, that speak for forces unknown to men. 'Leaf Storm, ' then, brings together both Garci a Ma rquez's early and late styles. The former deserves our respect; the latter requires our celebration."-- Peter S. Prescott, "Newsweek""To call these allegories would be to suggest that they are 'symbolic' somehow and perhaps plainly stated. They ore not; the texture is that of the prose poem, and the intention a restatement of religious belief. But the feeling one comes away with is that of enchantment, which is a sense of having endured terror and magic." -- Paul Theroux, "Chicago Tribune""Garci a Ma rquez has extraordinary strength and firmness of imagination and writes with the calmness of a man who knows exactly what wonders he can perform. Strange things happen in the land of Ma rquez. As with Emerson, Poe, Hawthorne, every sentence breaks the silence of a vast emptiness, the famous New World 'solitude' that is the unconscious despair of his characters but the sign of Ma rquez's genius." -- Alfred Kazin, "The New York Times Book Review"
