The term "magic realism" seems, at first glance, to be oxymoronic. How can anything real seem magical? How can magic be real? The interconnectedness, however, of the quotidian and the fantastical is a hallmark of Latin American literature and one of the greatest living practitioners of this literary technique is the Columbian writer, Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
