Leopard in the Sun was a real treat and I think magic realist fiction enthusiasts will enjoy it After reading the first sentence on the dust jacket I couldn t wait to devour this one Imagine the Sicilian history of The Godfather rewritten by Gabriel Garcia Maruez or West Side Story reinterpreted by Isabel Allende and you have a sense of Laura Restrepo s unforgettable novel of the making of Colombia s drug cartels I couldn t have said it better myself Likewise since Gabriel Garcia Maruez is my favorite author and was once followed closely in that lineup by Isabel Allende before her two most recent weak novels were published I am happy to report that this book does deliver what it promises I did however find the interspersed hearsay sections of the story in italics a bit frustrating For me they interrupted the flow of the narrative and interfered with the effect of enchantment the whole reason I read and love magic realist fiction However I understand what Restrepo was going for because there is always than one explanation for the magical and strange happenings in good magic realist fiction and these sections tend to show the warring Barragans and the Monsalves almost as folk heros or villains to the townspeople who make up these choruses of praise or condemnation but I still thought this was a bit forced Nonetheless this novel was delightful in its strange beauty heartbreak and humor that at times had me laughing raucously out loud What I wonder is why it wasn t better publicized to magic realist readers not just the Spanish speaking ones It was first published in 1999 but I had heard nothing about it until recently and that was by accidentally stumbling upon it here on Goodreads Restrepo s Leopard in the Sun was everything Juan Gabriel Vasuez s The Sound of Things Falling should have been but wasn t I highly recommend it
