Garcia Marquez's recent death inspired me to go back and read what I had long remembered as my favorite of his novels. It is just as delightful upon rereading - a novella that begins the morning of Santiago Nasar’s titular "Death", and then backs up and recounts the chain of events that has led up to it, inevitably. Rich and imaginative Marquez narrative at its finest.
