I romanzi dello scrittore colombiano, maestro del 'realismo magico' e premio Nobel nel 1982, hanno venduto centinaia di milioni di copie in tutto il mondo. Gli esordi da giornalista, l'amicizia con Fidel Castro, l'ideale di una via sudamericana al socialismo.
Gabriel Jose Garcia Marquez, born on 6 March 1927 during a rainstorm in the backwater of Aracataca near the Caribbean coast, not only described but in a sense created today’s Colombia. The author of One Hundred Years of Solitude, Love in the Time of Cholera and other masterworks from The Autumn of the Patriarch to The General in his Labyrinth, he put his stamp on his country and on a worldwide republic of letters.
García Márquez, a native of Colombia, is widely credited with helping to popularize 'magic realism', a genre 'in which the fantastic and the realistic are combined in a richly composed world of imagination', as the Nobel committee described it upon awarding him the prize for literature in 1982.
