Chronicle of a Death Foretold BSY609

US$13.95

A man returns to the town where a baffling murder took place 27 years earlier, determined to get to the bottom of the story. Just hours after marrying the beautiful Angela Vicario, everyone agrees, Bayardo San Roman returned his bride in disgrace to her parents. Her distraught family forced her to name her first lover; and her twin brothers announced their intention to murder Santiago Nasar for dishonoring their sister. 
Yet if everyone knew the murder was going to happen, why did no one intervene to stop it? The more that is learned, the less is understood, and as the story races to its inexplicable conclusion, an entire society--not just a pair of murderers—is put on trial.

在《一桩事先张扬的凶杀案》中,马尔克斯的语言如此丰沛,如魔法一般,无人能企及。在马尔克斯的小说中,圣地亚哥纳萨尔终于成了一桩事先张扬的凶杀案的牺牲品。它是魔幻现实主义图景中荒诞的一幕,是阴险、邪恶的人类心灵的一次曝光,是种种命运的巧合、微妙的心理动机、怪诞的机遇之偶然的汇聚。
这是一场精心布局的悲剧,构思聪明而奇特,像是个带有形而上学色彩的谋杀之谜。《纽约时报》
调查一桩多年前的谋杀案,揭开其扑朔迷离的真相,犹如一场幻觉般的探索,是对人类黑暗面的深度调查。《纽约书评》
一部精心的杰作。加西亚?马尔克斯不仅向我们呈现了小镇的历史,更描绘了小镇的全貌和它的灵魂。它反映的不是一场命运悲剧,更是一种文化。《华盛顿邮报》
