Gabriel Garc?a M?rquez is one of the greatest and most popular writers of the century. As Gerald Martin tells the rags-to-riches story of the author's rise to international acclaim, he reveals the tensions in Gabriel M?rquez's life between celebrity and literary quality, between politics and writing, and among power, solitude, and love. Considered by Garc?a M?rquez to be his "official biographer," Martin is uniquely placed to comment on the contrast between Garc?a M?rquez's Caribbean background and the culture of Bogot?, as well as the success of One Hundred Years of Solitude and the fame and unimagined wealth that followed it.

Interviewing more than three hundred people, including Fidel Castro, Felipe Gonz?lez, Mario Vargas Llosa, the author's family, and "Gabo" himself, Martin immerses himself in Garc?a M?rquez's world.

GERALD MARTIN is the Andrew Mellon Professor of Modern Languages at the University of Pittsburgh and president of the International Institute of Ibero- American Literature.
