The literary genre, magic realism, can be found in Marquez’s books and short stories such as 100 Years of Solitude and “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings”.
I have chosen this story from the textbook. Page 353-359 called A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings A Tale for Children, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Mays, Kelly J. Ed.
Garcia Marquez won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1982, and his books have outsold everything published in Spanish except the Bible. Along with writers including Norman Mailer and Tom Wolfe, he was also an early practitioner of literary nonfiction that would become known as New Journalism.
A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings by Gabriel García Márquez demonstrates how mental depictions of past perfections can change an awesome being into merely an aberration.
