Review

"Majestic...Superb...A stunning portrait of hte archetype, the pathological fascist tyrant."--" New York Times Book Review"""The Autumn of the Patriarch" mines one of the darkest veins in Latin American political history. The central character is a composite of Trujillos, Batistas and Somozas. His is a genius at the barren politics of survival, capable and guilty of the most savage brutality, a lonely monster who shuffles through his palace every night, checking the locks, looking for assassins, lighting a lantern for a quick exit." --" America" --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

De herfst van de patriarch vertelt het verhaal van een stokoude dictator die langzaam sterft in eenzaamheid. Hij is ervan overtuigd dat hij de geschiedenis eigenhandig heeft veranderd, maar is eigenlijk niet meer dan een marionet. Zonder van de dictator-patriarch een karikatuur te maken, schetst Gabriel García Márquez in slechts enkele lange, barokke zinnen een onvergetelijke fi guur, zoals er zovele voorkomen in de geschiedenis van Latijns-Amerika. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
