One Hundred Years of Solitude

The novel is best known for crystallizing the mode called magical realism, (lo real magicoso), a combination of the every day and a kind of natural reporting style in which extraordinary things happen. Gypsies float by on magical carpets. A woman ascends to heaven, folding laundry as she goes.
