abstract
A biography with the narrative tension of an investigation and thoughtful and personal study of the life and legacy of Gabriel García Márquez, known as "Gabo" to all of Latin America, the 1982 Nobel Prize winner for Literature and author of the globally-celebrated and critically-acclaimed masterpiece One Hundred Years of Solitude. The Colombian journalist and law-school dropout grew up in the poverty and violence of northern Colombia to become a pioneer of life-affirming literature, and to take part in the political struggles of the 70s and 80s - including a pivotal and previously unknown role in negotiations between Cuban leader Fidel Castro and American President Bill Clinton.
Una historia sobre el increíble poder de la imaginación, que sigue los hilos entretejidos de la vida y obras de Gabriel García Márquez - "Gabo" para toda América Latina. La historia de los pequeños éxitos de Márquez, y sus devastadores intentos fallidos para hacer realidad su sueño, se desenvuelve con el telón de fondo de Colombia y el mundo de la política - hasta que él finalmente logra la repentina y unánime aclamación con la publicación de 100 años de soledad y el Nobel, en 1982.
