Gabriel García Márquez Novelist Turned 85 Today print
March 6, 2012

Colombian Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel García Márquez was born March 6, 1927. As the most famous representative of magic realism, he started working as a journalist, later foreign correspondent for a Colombian daily in the 1950s, and it was around this time that he published his first novella, too. His novels uniquely merge fiction with non-fiction: Love in the Time of Cholera is based on the love of his parents, while Chronicle of a Death Foretold tells the story of a real murder in the form of pseudo-journalistic reconstruction. Due to his criticism of Colombian politics he had to leave his country where he wasn't safe any more - actually he resides in Mexico City. His most famous novel, One Hundred Years of Solitude (published in 1967) draws the attention to the consequences of loneliness and solitude through the story of a family.

You may find novels in English and Spanish from Márquez in the web shop of Hungaropress!
