Este libro excepcional reúne los angeles novela corta que le otorga su título y otros seis relatos más, de los que todos menos uno pertenecen a los angeles etapa de plena madurez del escritor. Fueron los años en los que Macondo le abrió las puertas del realismo mágico, donde los angeles realidad se expresa mediante fórmulas mágicas y legendarias y los milagros se insertan en los angeles vida cotidiana. los angeles cándida Eréndira y su abuela desalmada personifican los angeles inocencia y los angeles maldad, el amor y su perversión, y el relato recuerda al mismo tiempo las gestas medievales y los cantos provenzales o trovadorescos, aunque, como siempre, inmersos en ese mundo denso y frutal del Caribe americano. Estas siete narraciones no son ejercicios para conservar un estilo, ni muchísimo menos, sino siete exploraciones en el mundo definitivo que el escritor había conquistado de una vez por todas.
