 Latin America produced some of the boldest and most original fiction of the last century as represented by two brief, haunting novels, dealing with memory, isolation and collective guilt. In Marquez’s masterly Chronicle of a Death Foretold, the piecing together of a 27 year old crime unlocks the tangled life of an entire community, whilst in Juan Rulfo’s equally potent Pedro Paramo – a book  Marquez claimed to have memorised – a young man’s search for his father leads him into a dreamlike landscape of ghosts and whispers.
