    I'm more than half-way through. I feel as if I am reading Marquez. Clairvoyance, curses, woman of angelic beauty, illegitimate sons; everything is there. Allende is a master story teller just like...

    His novel One Hundred Years of Solitude was my first introduction to magic realism. I wonder if I'd like this genre so much if I had started with some other novel. Marquez once wrote that there is...
