"Of Love and Other Demons" (1994) by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

On her 12th birthday, the daughter of the Marquis of a Colombian seaport is one of four people bitten by a rabid dog. She’s the only survivor.

In a town racked by superstition, people begin to suspect she’s a demon and a young priest is brought in to exorcize her.

“Of Love and Other Demons” – translated by Edith Grossman – is the story of Sierva Maria in a Gabriel Garcia Marquez world where fact and fable are inextricably yoked together.

This 1994 novel is not as famous as his other works but is a masterpiece nevertheless. Now to watch the movie adaptation.
