Los funerales de la Mamá Grande (Spanish Edition)

En Los funerales de l. a. Mamá Grande, nos econtramos en Macondo y su región una vez más, entre personajes y episodios reconocibles, pero ahora caen pájaros muertos sobre el poblado, un cura ve al diablo o afirma haber encontrado al judío errante, y visitar l. a. tumba de un ser querido supone un riesgo impredecible. Y hay que enterrar a l. a. Mamá Grande, soberana absoluta de este mundo, que falleció en olor de santidad a los ninety two años, tras haber conservado l. a. virginidad durante toda su vida, y a cuyos funerales acude el presidente de los angeles República y hasta el Sumo Pontífice en su góndola papal, pero también guajiros, contrabandistas, arroceros, prostitutas, hechiceros y bananeros llegados para los angeles ocasión.
 
Bajo el lema de estos funerales mitológicos, Gabriel García Márquez reunió siete relatos y los angeles novela corta que da título al presente volumen, en el que aparece ya en todo su esplendor el elemento mágico y telúrico que a partir de entonces definiría su obra, sin apartarla, por ello, de l. a. realidad.
