AVAILABLE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN eBOOK! In Barcelona, an aging Brazilian prostitute trains her dog to weep at the grave she has chosen for herself. In Vienna, a woman parlays her gift for seeing the future into a fortunetelling position with a wealthy family. In Geneva, an ambulance driver and his wife take in the lonely, apparently dying ex-President of a Caribbean country, only to discover that his political ambition is very much intact. In these twelve masterly stories about the lives of Latin Americans in Europe, Garcia MArquez conveys the peculiar amalgam of melancholy, tenacity, sorrow, and aspiration that is the emigre experience.
