El amor en los tiempos del cólera
A beautifully packaged edition of one of García Márquez's most beloved novels, El amor en los tiempos del cólera, with never before seen illustrations by the Chilean artist Luisa Rivera and an interior design created by the author's son, Gonzalo García Barcha. [English translation of title: Love in the Time of Cholera (Illustrated Edition)] In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina eventually chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years in 622 affairs--yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last, and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.
