I haven't read anything by him yet, but I recently bought Cien años de soledad. I will read it soon.

Mercè Rodoreda died in 1983. She used to write novels but also other types of literature, (short stories) as well as I-C. Simó, who mostly writes novels but also essays and short stories.

Woooowwwwww Miss Dixie, I must to read that authors.
I haver read García Márquez. I like too much. I have read too much latinamerican authors, my favorite is Borges. but I´ve never read nothing about Rodoreda and Isabel-Clara Simó. Tell me are they from Catalunia or from Spain???

I like Julio Cortazar too, and of course Carlos Fuentes (Mexican).

Now I don´t have much time to read at home, but at the office I have reading stories about Arthur the King, my favorite since I was 7 years old.

He is a great author, all of his books are excellent. I like very much one called "Cronica de una muerte anuciada", this book is awesome and it describes very well all the events that are happening.

Mercè Rodoreda was from Catalonia, Isabel-Clara Simó is from the Valencian country. By the way, I met the latter for the second time last month, she signed all my books and was very nice to me. She was surprised that I had so many of her books :D She asked, "Don't you ever get tired of me, honey?" :lol:
