Columbian author Gabriel García Márquez started his writing career as a journalist and has since written numerous short stories, non-fiction works and novels.
In 1982 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature and has gained wide acclaim for his novel “One Hundred Years of Solitude”.
Other works that he’s recognized for are: “Love in the Time of Cholera” and “Love and Other Demons”.
Many think that “One Hundred Years of Solitude” is Márquez’s best work which tells a tale of seven generations of the Buendía family.
Using “magic realism”, where fantasy and reality mingle, Márquez sets the novel in Macondo, a town established by José Arcadio Buendía, and surprises us with a variety of happenings which stretch our imagination.
