The General in His Labyrinth by Gabriel Garcia Marquez [SPANISH FIRST EDITION / 1989]
FIRST EDITION  MONDADORI (SPAIN)
Spanish language. Hardcover with dust jacket in excellent condition.
Spanish language edition. The novel follows Bolivar as he takes his final journey in 1830 down the Magdalena River toward the sea, revisiting the scenes of his former glory and lamenting his lost dream of an alliance of American nations. Forced from power, dogged by assassins, and prematurely aged and wasted by a fatal illness, the General is still a remarkably vital and mercurial man. He seems to remain alive by the sheer force of will that led him to so many victories in the battlefields and love affairs of his past. As he wanders in the labyrinth of his failing powers - and still-powerful memories - he defies his impending death until the last.
