Strange, wondrous things happen in these two short stories, which are both the perfect introduction to Gabriel García Márquez, and a wonderful read for anyone who loves the magic and marvels of his novels.
After days of rain, a couple find an old man with huge wings in their courtyard in A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings — but is he an angel?
Accompanying A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings is the short story The Sea of Lost Time, in which a seaside town is brought back to life by a curious smell of roses.
