    Almost anything by Isabelle Allende- The House of the Spirits, The Stories of Eva Luna

    There's also some magical realism in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's books Chronicle of a Death Foretold and his novel One Hundred Years of Solitude is considered the most iconic magical realist work.

    You can find a whole list here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Magic_realis...

    it might desire to be some thing undemanding like a considerable character who's a scientist yet is going homestead to maintain business enterprise with the ghost of a deceased roommate/kin member/lover etc. i'm basically questioning of magical realism crossing a rational view of the international with an practically conventional popularity of the supernatural. solid success.

    In One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez,when a character was killed,his mother knew,because a trail of his blood ran down the streets ,directly up to her house.there are many other examples in that book, and in one of his short stories,an old man has wings.
