One Hundred Years of Solitude
Pipes and kettledrums herald the arrival of gypsies on their annual visit to Macondo, the newly founded village where Jos Arcadio Buenda and his strong-willed wife, rsula, have started their new life. As the mysterious Melquades excites Aureliano Buenda's father with new inventions and tales of adventure, neither can know the significance of the indecipherable manuscript that the old gypsy passes into their hands.
