Gabriel Garcia Marquez, author of the modern classic One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera, is one of the greatest and most popular writers of the late-twentieth century. As Gerald Martin tells the story of the authors fascinating rise to wealth and international fame, he reveals the tensions in Garcia Marquezs life between celebrity and literary quality, between politics and writing, and between power, solitude and love. Interviewing more than three hundred people including Fidel Castro, Felipe Gonzalez, Carlos Fuentes and Mario Vargas Llosa, the authors large family as well as 'Gabo himself, Martin immerses himself in Garcia Marquezs world. This at first 'tolerated and now 'official biography is as gripping and revealing as the writers journalism and as complex and involving as any of his fiction.
