More About the Author

Gabriel García Márquez was born in Aracataca, Colombia, in 1928.

He has written a great number of books, including the masterpiece One Hundred Years of Solitude, and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982. He now lives in Mexico City.

Márquez studied at the University of Bogotá and later worked as a reporter for the Colombian newspaper El Espectador and as a foreign correspondent in Rome, Paris, Barcelona, Caracas and New York. His first full-length work, One Hundred Years of Solitude, was published in 1967 to immediate worldwide success. The book is perhaps the prime example of Márquez's remarkable ability to present the supernatural as mundane and the mundane as supernatural. It chronicles the history of a family in the fictional town of Macondo - the loves, hates, rivalries, wars, successes and failures. The novel is an example of postmodernism, treating time with ambiguity and crossing genres and narrative styles. Salman Rushdie has described the book as "the greatest novel in any language of the last fifty years".

Another of Márquez's masterworks, Love in the Time of Cholera, was published to widespread acclaim in 1985. The book, a complex and compelling study of the myths we make about love, is less fantastical than One Hundred Years of Solitude but just as luminous and unique.He is the author of several novels and collections of stories, including Chronicle of a Death Foretold, Leaf Storm, No One Writes to the Colonel, In Evil Hour, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Innocent Eréndira and Other Stories, The Autumn of the Patriach,News of a Kidnapping, The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor, Love in the Time of Cholera, The General in His Labyrinth, Strange Pilgrims, Of Love and Other Demons and the first first volume of his autobiography,Living to Tell the Tale. His most recent book is, Memories of my Melancholy Whores.

Many of his books are published by Penguin.

5.0 out of 5 stars La ternura en palabras 1 April 1998
By A Customer
Pocas obras he leido con las que puedas oir, oler, tocar, ver y degustar con tanta precision y ternura. Verdaderamente una obra maestra sobre nuestra vida pasadas, presente y futura.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unico Relato 15 Dec 2008
Los caracteres centrales son Fermina Daza, Florentino Ariza, y Juvenal Urbino, un medico. Fermina rechaza el amor de Florentino y pues se casa con Juvenal. Juvenl ofrece la securidad pero el matrimonio no crea mucho romanticismo. Una retorcida historia desarrolla entre estas personas y otras. El libro produce un cuento imprevisible, fascinante y lleno de emociones diversas.Translator's Kiss

I loved the English version, and bought more copies including this one in Spanish for my daughter-in-law. Always a good sign when you want to keep your own copy but feel the need to buy a copy for your family and friends
