" Exquisitely harrowing . . . very strange and brilliantly conceived . . .a sort of metaphysical murder mystery." -- "The New York Times Book Review"
" This investigation of an ancient murder takes on the quality of a hallucinatory exploration, a deep, groping search into the gathering darkness of human intentions for a truth that continually slithers away." - "The New York Review of Books
"" Brilliant . . . A small masterpiece . . . we can almost see, smell and hear Garcia Marquez' s Caribbean backwater and its inhabitants." -- "San Francisco Chronicle"
" As pungent and memorable as a sharp spice, an examination of the nature of complicity and fate . . . an exquisite performance." - "The Christian Science Monitor
" "A tour de force . . . In prose that is spare yet heavy with meaning, Garcia Marquez gives us not merely a chronicle but a portrait of the town and its collective psyche . . . not merely a family but an entire culture." - "The Washington Post Book World
