Praise

“This brilliant collection . . . puts his journalism on the same level as his fiction, which is quite some level.” —Salman Rushdie  

The Scandal of the Century demonstrate[s] that his forthright, lightly ironical voice just seemed to be there, right from the start. . . . He had a way of connecting the souls in all his writing, fiction and nonfiction, to the melancholy static of the universe.” —The New York Times

“This collection is a master class on how to write for a newspaper: lush, vivid columns full of information, irony, whimsy, humor, skepticism and rumination, just what one would expect.” —Seymour M. Hersh
 
“Márquez’s fiction would not exist without his journalism, just as without his fiction his journalism would not exist: they nourished each other. Some of [his] journalistic pieces are every bit as good as his fiction at its best.” —Javier Cercas, author of Lord of All the Dead
