Love in the Time of Cholera (Illustrated Edition)

Look inside
This edition of one of  Gabriel García Márquez’s most beloved novels includes never-before-seen color illustrations by the Chilean artist Luisa Rivera and an interior design created by the author’s son, Gonzalo García Barcha.

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.

“A rich, commodious novel whose narrative power is matched only by its generosity of vision.” —The New York Times

“Revolutionary in daring to suggest that vows of love made under a presumption of immortality—youthful idiocy, to some—may yet be honored, much later in life when we ought to know better, in the face of the undeniable. . . . A shining and heartbreaking book.” —Thomas Pynchon, The New York Times Book Review
 
“A love story of astonishing power and delicious comedy. . . . Humane, richly comic, almost unbearably touching and altogether extraordinary.” —Newsweek
