Synopsis

Innocent Erendira and Other Stories is a collection of short stories from the Nobel Prize winner and author of One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. (Gabriel Garcia Marquez). 'Erendira was bathing her grandmother when the wind of misfortune began to blow.' While her grotesque and demanding grandmother retires to bed, Erendira still has floors to wash, sheets to iron, and a peacock to feed. The never-ending chores leave the young girl so exhausted that's he collapses into bed with the candle still glowing on a nearby table - and is fast asleep when it topples over...Eight hundred and seventy-two thousand, three hundred and fifteen pesos, her grandmother calculates, is the amount that Erendira must repay for the loss of the house. As she is dragged by her grandmother from town to town and hawked to soldiers, smugglers and traders, Erendira feels herself dying. Can the love of a virgin save the young whore from her hell? It becomes more and more fun to read. It shows what fabulous really means. (Time Out). Marquez writes in this lyrical, magical language that no-one else can do. (Salman Rushdie). One of this century's most evocative writers. (Anne Tyler).
