The theme for April is South America. The specific book is “Chronicle of a Death Foretold” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It’s quite a short book – 122 pages in my library copy.
Unfortunately, the library doesn’t have many copies. It does have more copies of “Memories of My Melancholy Whores” by the same author, though you might like to check a review before diving into it (Washington Post).
I’m posting the book early, so there’s time for shipping if you buy it online. Fishpond, Book Depository and Amazon have copies of Chronicle of a Death Foretold.
Another author is Isobel Allende.
