Eric Kraft's 5 most important books

Eric Kraft is the author of a series of novels chronicling the life of fictional character Peter Leroy. His latest title is Flying.

He told Newsweek about his five most important books.

One title on the list:
"One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel García Márquez.

It plays elegant games that came to be called magical realism, but may be better called realism in the service of romance.
Read about all five books on Kraft's list.

One Hundred Years of Solitude also appears on James Patterson's five most important books list.
