MacKenzie’s life would be classified as ideal by most teenage standards. A set of supportive parents who were still lovingly married, a best friend who was also her identical twin, a mentally tough athlete (who had more muscles than most of her guy friends), and a competitive GPA that was sure to get her into a great college. Everything was right on track for a perfect life, until the age of sixteen, when she was shockingly diagnosed with cancer during a routine physical. Living with the Ribbon is an authentic recount of how MacKenzie Greenberg dealt with the diagnosis (what denial?), suffered through anxiety at each medical appointment (all one hundred-plus of them), responded with “Fine” when asked that annoying “How are you doing/feeling?” question, stubbornly refused to listen to the advice of her support system to “take it easy,” and ultimately, how she continues to battle daily with a disease that will not play by the rules.

The purpose of this study is to show Kafka's thematic and stylistic influence on the three recent novels by Garcia Marquez, and to explore the metaphysical topics of human solitude, the meaning of life and death, the individual search for spirituality, modern man's alienation, and the continuous striving for personal freedom. Both writers are true representatives of the Twentieth Century and are strongly influenced by existential thought, based on the world view of Kierkegaard and Heidegger.
