Meet the Author

Gabriel García Márquez
Gabriel García Márquez nació en Aracataca, Colombia en 1927. Asistió a la Universidad Nacional de Colombia en Bogotá y luego trabajó como periodista en El Espectador. Posteriormente sirvió como corresponsal en Roma, París, Barcelona, Caracas y Nueva York. Es autor de varias novelas y colecciones de cuentos, incluyendo El coronel no tiene quien le escriba, El otoño del patriarca, La increíble y triste historia de la cándida Eréndida y de su abuela desalmada, Crónica de una muerte anunciada, El general en su laberinto, Doce cuentos peregrinos, Del amor y otros demonios y, más recientemente, Memoria de mis putas tristes y su autobiografía Vivir para contarla. Fue galardonado con el Premio Nobel de Literatura en 1982.

Biography

Gabriel García Márquez is the product of his family and his nation. Born in the small coastal town of Aracataca in northern Colombia, he was raised by his maternal grandparents. As a child, he was mesmerized by stories spun by his grandmother and her sisters -- a rich gumbo of superstitions, folk tales, and ghost stories that fired his youthful imagination. And from his grandfather, a colonel in Colombia's devastating Civil War, he learned about his country's political struggles. This potent mix of Liberal politics, family lore, and regional mythology formed the framework for his magical realist novels.

When his grandfather died, García Márquez was sent to Sucre to live (for the first time) with his parents. He attended university in Bogotá, where he studied law in accordance with his parents' wishes. It was here that he first read The Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka and discovered a literature he understood intuitively -- one with nontraditional plots and structures, just like the stories he had known all his life. His studies were interrupted when the university was closed, and he moved back north, intending to pursue both writing and law; but before long, he quit school to pursue a career in journalism.

In 1954 his newspaper sent García Márquez on assignment to Italy, marking the start of a lifelong self-imposed exile from the horrors of Colombian politics that took him to Barcelona, Paris, New York, and Mexico. Influenced by American novelist William Faulkner, creator of the fictionalized Yoknapatawpha County, and by the powerful intergenerational tragedies of the Greek dramatist Sophocles, García Márquez began writing fiction, honing a signature blend of fantasy and reality that culminated in the 1967 masterpiece One Hundred Years of Solitude. This sweeping epic became an instant classic and set the stage for more bestselling novels, including Love in the Time of Cholera, Love and Other Demons, and Memories of My Melancholy Whores. In addition, he has completed the first volume of a shelf-bending memoir, and his journalism and nonfiction essays have been collected into several anthologies.

In 1982, García Márquez was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. In his acceptance speech, he called for a "sweeping utopia of life, where no one will be able to decide for others how they die, where love will prove true and happiness be possible, and where the races condemned to one hundred years of solitude will have, at last and forever, a second opportunity on earth." Few writers have pursued that utopia with more passion and vigor than this towering 20th-century novelist.

Good To Know

Gabriel José García Márquez' affectionate nickname is Gabo.

García Márquez' first two novellas were completed long before their actual release dates, but might not have been published if it weren't for his friends, who found the manuscripts in a desk drawer and a suitcase, and sent them in for publication.

    What's not to like

    Marquez is one of, if not the, greatest living writer in any language. I read this book in the original Spanish which is pretty difficult. I have friends in Colombia who don't like Marquez because their teachers made them read him. I feel the same way about Herman Melville. Be that as it may, this is one of the great books. Every bit as worthy of the accolades heaped on Cien Años De Soledad (100 Years of Solitude).

    Un libro muy conmovedor, romantico, y divertido!

    Hace tiempo este libro me fue recomendado por un amigo y desde entonces no he podido olvidar cuanto me divertio. Al conocer el personaje de Florentino Ariza me enseno que con paciencia y amor se puede lograr todo.

    Una histoia que nos describe a todos

    Esta historia describe facilmente como cada persona define y siente el amor de diferente forma llegando a ser una obsesion para unos y para otros solo una satisfaccion fisica y como para unos es muy facil identificarlo como para Florentino Araiza, y para otros es tan dificil darse cuenta de sus sentimientos como para Fermina Daza. Descrito todo de una manera que te lleva a visualizar toda la atmosfera de la historia y no te dejara parar de leer hasta el final.

    Un Tratado sobre los Diferentes Tipos de Amor.

    El Amor en el Tiempo del Cólera es una obra magistral de Gabriel García Márquez que relata el amor no correspondido de Florentino Ariza y Fermina Daza, que llega a consumarse más de medio siglo después cuando ella enviuda de su prominente esposo el Doctor Juvenal Urbino con quien se casa como una imposición de su padre. Pero es todavía más que eso: es un tratado del amor en todas sus dimensiones: el amor verdadero, el amor no correspondido, el amor fiel, el amor conyugal, el amor peligroso, el amor en la viudez, el amor en el concubinato, el crimen pasional, el amor en la vejez y en la juventud, el amor y la amistad, el amor furtivo, el amor senil, el amor por interés, el amor hacia los hijos y el amor hacia los padres, entre otros. Es una obra de literatura que nos queda en la mente por mucho tiempo después de leerla y que está escrita en una prosa mágica y enriquecedora, que nos hará no dejar el libro ni un momento hasta el final. ¡OJO! Gabriel García Márquez, quien ganó el Premio Novel por Literatura en 1982, es uno de los grandes protagonistas del Realismo Mágico en Latinoamérica. Pero esta obra no contiene los suficientes efectos del realismo mágico para ser cosiderada un título dentro de esta categoría. Es, eminentemente, una obra acerca del amor en todas sus manifestaciones. No debe dejar de leerse.

    Bella historia de amor que refleja la realidad de muchos

    Este libro es una maravilla literaria.Desde que abrí sus páginas por primera vez sentí una obseción terrible por seguir leyendo. Refleja sentimientos que aunque perecen fantasía para muchos, estan muy cerca de la realidad. Una obra encantadora.

    A reviewer

    No me gusta leer novelas porque casi todas se trata de la misma historia con el mismo final, pero El amor en los tiempos del colera,hace volar la imaginacion y crea ese romanticismo increible.La recomiendo muy buena.

    Romantica

    Es el mejor libro de los que yo he leido, ya que no cae en lo ridiculo de toda novela romatica, este es un tipo de obra que se queda por siempre en tu memoria pues aun yo en lo particular no alcanzo a comprender como una persona puede vivir para otra sin ni siquiera tenerla, lo que el hombre siente en esta novela definitivamente diria yo que es amor pues respeto que ella siguiera su vida aunque a el le doliera en el alma.

    El amor traspasa las barreras del tiempo!!!!

    Como primerizo lector de las obras de Garcia Marquez me atrevo a decir que esta novela relata la historia de Florentino Ariza y su eterno amor por Fermina Daza. Esta novela nos da una idea de como el amor es capaz de traspasar la barrera del tiempo y de como crece a medida que se aneja en el sotano del tiempo. Es como que si el amor fuera como el vino mientras mas anejo, mejor!
