Summary
"The first comprehensive biography of the author of One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in a Time of Cholera ? the most popular international novelist of the last fifty years. Central concerns will be the rags to riches element of Garcia Marquez?s story, the tension in his life between celebrity and literary quality, between politics and writing; and between power, solitude and love; the contrast between his Caribbean background and the gloomier authoritarianism of highland Bogota; and his conscious but nonetheless extraordinary turn away from Macondo, magical realism and One Hundred Years of Solitude after those interlinked phenomena had brought him fame and unimagined wealth."--Publisher description
Summary
Describes the life and accomplishments of the Columbian novelist, from his childhood and early career to his Nobel Prize in Literature and his exploits as a political and social activist
