“A triumph of storytelling.” –San Francisco Chronicle
“Full of relish at life’s oddness. . . . García Márquez’s sheer ability to hold and enthrall makes Strange Pilgrims fascinating and memorable.” –The New York Times Books Review
“Psychologically sharp . . . altogether ingratiating."–The Washington Post
"Nothing short of brilliant—each of these tales is a gem."–The Seattle Times
“García Márquez at his best. With a surreal phrase or a magic image, he allows us to see reality, grave and comic at once, in a unique light.” –Los Angeles Times Book Review
