Gabriel García Márquez One Hundred Years of Solitude Landmarks of World Literature.

Gabriel García Márquez One Hundred Years of Solitude Landmarks of World Literature.

Gabriel Garc?a M?rquez : A Life. The biography of the 1982 Nobel Laureate in Literature tells the story of Marquez, a young man who rose from obscure provincial journalist to progenitor of a new literature. Select Format: Hardcover. ISBN13:9780307271778. Release Date:May 2009.

Life is not what one lived, but what one remembers and how one remembers it writes Gabriel García Márquez in this book of memories of his childhood and youth. In this novel of a life, the author brings life to the characters and stories that populated his work, the magical world of his home town of Aracataca, his training in journalism, the tribulations of his family, the discovery of literature, and the beginnings of his own writing. In this swarm of stories, where extraordinary meetings and sleepless nights often occur, emerges perhaps the most romantic book by Gabriel García Márquez

The speaker never did any such thing. The captured FARC computers contain all sorts of fantasy and false information, including an alleged meeting between me and the author Gabriel García Márquez in Cartagena.

The speaker never did any such thing. For the record, I have never met Mr. García Márquez and I have never been to Cartagena To Read the Full Story.

Gerald Martin's detailed analysis of García Márquez's political life leaves no controversy or criticism untouched. Instead, with perceptiveness and lyricism, he offers his readers insight into the complexities of a subtle diplomat; a man capable of maintaining friendships with both Castro and Bill Clinton. However, for his readers, Márquez is probably most loved for the creation of the town of Macondo

It is obviously a labor of love, spanning almost 20 years. In fact, Gabriel Garcia Marquez: A Life is highly reminiscent of the famed subject’s classic novel One Hundred Years of Solitude, though this may be because so much of his fiction is based on his own life (or maybe because of Martin’s serious emulation for, and unintentional imitation of, Garcia Marquez). And for anyone who has struggled with keeping the Buendia family tree straight, don’t worry: Martin offers a much more easy-to-follow genealogical record of his subject.

Gabriel GarcÃÂa Márquez: a life. For twenty-five years he was the only English-speaking member of the Archives Association of Twentieth-Century Latin American Literature in Paris, and he is a recent president of the International Institute of Ibero-American Literature in the United States.

Martin chronicles the particulars of an extraordinary life, from his upbringing in backwater Columbia and early journalism .

Martin chronicles the particulars of an extraordinary life, from his upbringing in backwater Columbia and early journalism career, to the publication of One Hundred Years of Solitude at age forty, and the wealth and fame that followed. Based on interviews with more than three hundred of Garcia Marquez’s closest friends, family members, fellow authors, and detractors-as well as the many hours Martin spent with ‘Gabo’ himself-the result is a revelation of both the writer and the man. It is as gripping as any of Gabriel García Márquez’s powerful journalism, as enthralling as any of his acclaimed.

I had bought "One Hundred years of Solitude" several years ago, but did not really get started with it. I am Scandinavian, but living in Latin America, thus have felt that it might be good to read GGM and to that extend Gerald Martin's excellent written biography of GGM has been the catalyst for me getting back to the GGM book. Gerald Martin writes in a way which keeps you interested and obviously has done a lot of research on GGM and so many aspects of Latin American politics, economy and mindset. I highly recommend this biography.

I have long been an avid reader of Latin American literature, but this biography sent me running to the Internet to find out more details about people and places mentioned in Gabriel García Márquez' life. Gerald Martin does a superb job of letting the reader penetrate the backgroud and the events that produced what many consider to be the world's masterpieces in Spanish. I read the entire book in two days, and I will read it yet again...well worth your time. Extremely well done. I especially loved the last paragraph!

An extremely well researched biography of one of the great writers of our time. Made me want to read "One Hundred Years of Solitude" again, for probably the 7th time. Has great insights into One Hundred Years of Solitude (P.S.) Columbian history and culture. Latin countries consider him a modern Cervantes. A must read for those of us who have been enthralled by each publication by this giant. Many thanks to Gerald Martin for his 17 years of effort.
Original
excellent....amazing man, the friends that he has made. this book explains his assoc with his writings, the family, cultural, political influences in his fabulous life. not just a biography, but a sociological, political, historical study of the 20th, 21st century. i was priviledged to have known him a bit in Cartagena and to know his brother Cuqui.
i am soo sorry that more of his books are not available on amazon¡

I was fascinated by the beginning of the book because Martin seemed to capture the spirit of magic realism in the retelling of Garcia Marquez's childhood, but has he grows up the narrative becomes much more factual. It doesn't delve into the dynamics of his closest relationships, nor does it characterize background figures in his life, making recurring "characters" almost impossible to tell apart. It's perfectly possible that, as Martin has a personal relationship with the still-living Garcia Marquez, that he didn't feel at liberty to speculate about these relationships, but those biographers who do tend to write the most powerful and resonating books.

It's still a great story though and it's well written!

Written with exceptional insight into the complex mind and life of the most gifted storyteller of all time. Martin's work is a remarkable achievement and a generous gift to those of us who could never get enough of Gabo and the worlds he inhabited. Martin's work brings to light Marquez's real life experiences and his relationships with his contempories, making this book also a valuable contribution to our understanding of social and cultural history.

Mr. Martin has written the ultimate biography of the greatest writer of fiction in the past 50 years. Detailed and fun it is a pleasure to read.
I give Gerald Martin's biography of Gabriel Garcia Marquez highest marks for clarity of writing, balanced handling of some of the most difficult and emotional events in the history of Colombia and for his engaging style. I was please to discover small details about the life and times of one of the centuries most influential writer's void of fawning. Thank you for a job well done.
