Dave,
You must read One-Hundred Years of Solitude by Marquez. It's an absolutely beautiful book. A friend of mine considers his book Love in the Time of Cholera among her all-time favorites as well (I haven't read it yet).

Sounds interesting, Dave.

Is there a Mormon component to the novel?

No Mormon component. I'm not even sure there's a moral component.

Almost anything by Garcia Marquez is better than almost anything in science fiction or fantasy, I think. (I've read plenty of both.) Rushdie's best work rates very high, as well. The Satanic Verses is good, but Midnight's Children is, I think, much better.

Okay, I'll add Midnight's Children and Cholera to my ever-growing reading list.

Dave:

Sounds like straight up fantasy to me, then. Literary novelists seem to have turned to speculative fiction big time that past two decades.
