About the Authors
  • Gabriel García Márquez is Latin America's most internationally famous and successful author, and a winner of the Nobel Prize. His oeuvre of great modern novels includes One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. His name has become closely associated with Magical Realism, a phenomenon that has been immensely influential in world literature. This Companion includes new and probing readings of all of García Márquez's works, by leading international specialists. His life in Colombia, the context of Latin American history and culture, key themes in his works and their critical reception are explored in detail. Written for students and readers of García Márquez, the Companion is accessible for non-Spanish speakers and features a chronology and a guide to further reading. This insightful and lively book will provide an invaluable framework for the further study and enjoyment of this major figure in world literature.

    • Covers all works as well as life and times, non-fiction, world impact and relationship to cinema
    • Detailed analysis of One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera
    • Spanish quotations are translated and all specifically Hispanic references/terms explained

    "… an engagingly diverse and lively overview of García Márquez’s oeuvre, not only offering many new insights into the major texts but also examining the less studied non-fictional works and cinematic adaptations."
    Lloyd Hughes Davis, Modern Language Review
