Until August by Gabriel García Márquez review – a ‘lost’ last novel

- A middle-aged woman visits a Caribbean island once a year in August to place flowers on her mother's tomb.

- Without planning, she approaches a man who is sitting alone in the hotel bar on the seventh of her pilgrimages and asks him to come up to her room. 

- The weather is stormy, mirroring their excitement: a thunderstorm is present, and blue herons are flying agitatedly above the lagoon.

- The man is gone when she wakes up in the morning. Not even his name is known to her.

- She then makes it a yearly goal to have the same encounter with a different stranger.
