Product Description

The first full and authorized biography of the 1982 Nobel Laureate in Literature - the most popular international novelist of the last fifty years. While telling the story of the young man who rose from obscure provincial journalist toprogenitor of a new literature, Gerald Martin also considers the tensions in Garcia Marquez's life between celebrity and the quest for literary quality, between politics and writing, and between the seductions of power, solitude, and love. He explores the contrast in the writer's homeland, Colombia, between the exuberance of his Caribbean background and the authoritarianism of highland Bogota; and his turning away from the magical realism of 100 Years of Solitude.
