From the beginning of the story, García Márquez’s style comes through in his unusual, almost fairy tale–like description of the relentless rain: “The world had been sad since Tuesday.” There is a mingling of the fantastic and ordinary in all the descriptions, including the swarms of crabs that invade Pelayo and Elisenda’s home and the muddy sand of the beach that in the rainy grayness looks “like powdered light.” It is in this strange, highly textured, dreamlike setting that the old winged man appears, a living myth, who is nevertheless covered in lice and dressed in rags.

Jody’s return, “sadder but wiser,” is imbued with little irony because Rawlings has made it seem simply another stage of his development and an expansion of consciousness. But when the Daggers find Adelina, they discover someone with powers like they've never seen. At one time, however, some of those myths might have seemed realistic to the people who believed them—albeit a mysterious and magical force that propels and influences their lives.

At many points, it’s suggested that the story of Berlin’s journey from Vietnam to Paris—in other words, the plot of the novel we’re reading—is a story Berlin is telling himself as a way of coping with his fear and anxiety. In fact, only the intentional withholding of any description can prevent you from developing your own explanation for how... something... works and why it works in that manner. Unfortunately no single essay is dedicated to exploring the possibility that Magic Realism is simply a different name for the fantastic.
