Magical realism

Magical realism is a genre or style of fiction which presents a realistic view of the world but adds magical or unreal elements so that the line between what is real and what is fantasy is blurred. It usually has a mundane, conventional or everyday setting, but paranormal or magical events which occur are portrayed as normal happenings. The emphasis is not on the fantastical elements of the story, but rather on what they mean for the characters.
