Alfred Kazin

Garcia Marquez has extraordinary strength and firmness of imagination and writes with the calmness of a man who knows exactly what wonders he can perform. Strange things happen in the land of Marquez. As with Emerson, Poe, Hawthorne, every sentence breaks the silence of a vast emptiness, the famous new world of solitude that is the unconscious despair of his characters but the sign of Marquez's genius. -- The New York Times Book Review
