Notes:
Pearlman quotes a review by Stephen McCauley on One Hundred Years of Solitude which states that "after reading this novel there was no forgetting that modern literature is bigger than the English language. Marquez took the top of my head off with the incantational beauty of his imagination, the mythic explication of South American history, the living ghosts and the dead ghosts, the dizzying repetition of names from one generation to the next."
