Homage to my favorite Latin American novelist, Gabriel Garcia Marquez


"Escritor, periodista y premio Nobel colombiano, Gabriel Garcia Marquez nació en Aracataca, Colombia y se formó inicialmente en el terreno del periodismo. Fue redactor de El Universal, un periódico de Cartagena de Indias durante 1946, de El Heraldo en Barranquilla entre 1948 y 1952, y de El Espectador en Bogotá a partir de 1952.

Sus novelas más conocidas son Cien años de soledad (1967), que narra en tono épico la historia de una familia colombiana, y en la cual se pueden rastrear las influencias estilísticas del novelista estadounidense William Faulkner, y El otoño del patriarca (1975), en torno al poder y la corrupción políticos. Crónica de una muerte anunciada (1981) es la historia de un asesinato en una pequeña ciudad latinoamericana, mientras que El amor en los tiempos del cólera (1985) es una historia de amor que se desarrolla también en Latinoamérica. El general en su laberinto (1989), por otro lado, es una narración ficticia de los últimos días del revolucionario y hombre de estado Simón Bolívar. También es autor de varios libros de cuentos como La increíble y triste historia de Eréndira y de su abuela la desalmada (1972) o Doce cuentos peregrinos (1992). García Márquez ha despertado admiración en numerosos países por la personalísima mezcla de realidad y fantasía que lleva a cabo en sus obras narrativas, situadas siempre en Macondo, una imaginaria ciudad de su país..**



************

"Latin-American journalist, novelist and short story writer, Colombian born Gabriel Garcia Marquez is a central figure in Magic Realism movement[the tendency of Latin-American writers to combine fantasy elements and mythology with otherwise realistic fiction].


His best known book is CIEN ANOS DE SOLEDAD-One Hundred Years of Solitude. It is the history of Macondo, depicted on a epic level, from its mythic foundation to its final disappearance. Combining the world of the bourgeois family chronicle and Latin American history it explores the limits of narrative fiction, without the sterility of the French "Nouveau roman". One Hundred Years of Solitude is considered as one of the most popular works of Magic Realism.

Márquez's other major novels and novellas include EL OTOÑO DEL PATRIARCA-Autumn Of The Patriarch, an analysis of dictatorship on mythical and historical level. In the story, a false death of the patriarch is followed by a second, apparently real, which leads to a new struggle of power. CRÓNICA DE UNA MUERTE ANUNCIADA- Chronicle Of A Death Foretold, recounted the murder of a man for allegedly violating the law of honor. Against these dramatic events, Márquez sets a small town where everyday life continues in spite that everyone knows a murder will happen. DEL AMOR Y OTROS DEMONIOS- Love and Other Demons, was a historical novel set in the 18th century Colombia. Although One Hundred years of Solitude is among the most famous modern classics in the world, many consider Love in the Time of Cholera his most enduring book.VIVIR PARA CONTARLA-Living To Tell The Tale, the first part of García Marquez's memoirs, was published in 2002. It spans the life of the author from his birth to the 1950s. After a long hiatus as a novelist, Márquez published MEMORIA DE MIS PUTAS TRISTES-Memory Of My Melancholy Whores(2004), which was immediately translated into 18 languages. Memory is Marquez's story of an old man and a young girl.The narrator is a ninety-year-old man who wants to spend a night with a 14-year-old virgin. It is the gift he wants to give himself before dying...In 1982, García Márquez was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature."
