Cómo se cuenta un cuento by Gabriel García Márquez, Gabriel Garcia Marquez

On this personal work, García Márquez reveals some of the main keys in the creation of a text, as well as some elements of the complex process of the making of a story, of a fiction settled in words, and, at the same time, he shares some angles of his own creative work. In the words of the author himself:“ What matters most in this world to me is the creative process. What kind of mystery is such so that the simple desire of telling stories become a passion, so that a human being is willing to die for it; to starve, to freeze, anything, in order to be able to do one thing that cannot be seen nor touch and that, if you think of it, is good for nothing?”

About the Author

One of the most important writers of the 20th century, Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez (1927-2014) was a Colombian novelist, short-story writer, screenwriter, and journalist who popularized magical realism, a technique which uses magical elements and events in order to explain real experiences. In 1982, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. He is perhaps best known for his book One Hundred Years of Solitude (1967), a novel that was both a critical and commercial success.
