Why this work
“One Hundred Years of Solitude. This book stands on the shelve in my head apart from all other books I’ve ever read and deeply felt. I can’t say it is my favourite book. Nevertheless after ten years passed since I’d read it I’m still under influence of it. This book seems not just like a book, but like an object: a stone or a mountain which simultaneously is a man and a word.”
