I just don't have a lot of patience for these intense adolescent infatuations which pass for great romances. (Opera is lousy with them.) García Márquez has a terrific facility with language and a wicked sense of humour, so I still think it's worth reading, but maybe after I'm done with the Welsh.

That's on my pandemic reading list as well.

In particular, he seems to have a big hard-on for Peter Handke and assumes you've read a lot more of his works than I have. I'm not sure why I'm even reading it except that I found it while I was repacking some books and it had the dust jacket stuffed inside as a bookmark so I started on it to see if I'd actually gotten that far in it before and to be honest I can't even tell. I really just should get back to El amor en los tiempos de cólera at long last.
I just edited the Dutch Wikipedia page to include it. The strange thing is that it was published in translation a year before De geliefden van Allerheiligen (Los amantes de Todos los Santos), which is the most recent title mentioned.
