One of the world's most famous novels, One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, blends the natural with the supernatural in one of the most magical reading experiences on earth. 'Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendia was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice' Gabriel Garcia Marquez's great masterpiece is the story of seven generations of the Buendia family and of Macondo, the town they have built. Though little more than a settlement surrounded by mountains, Macondo has its wars and disasters, even its wonders and its miracles. A microcosm of Columbian life, its secrets lie hidden, encoded in a book, and only Aureliano Buendia can fathom its mysteries and reveal its shrouded destiny. Blending political reality with magic realism, fantasy and comic invention, One Hundred Years of Solitude is one of the most daringly original works of the twentieth century.

ABOUT THE BOOK Colombian-born author Gabriel García Márquez, or "Gabo" as he is known, is the preeminent figure among Latin American writers and an internationally recognized leader in contemporary literature. García Márquez, a writer, journalist, political activist and screenwriter, is considered the "father of magical realism," spawning a new genre of literature forty five years ago with a solitary composition. To date, the Nobel Prize-winning author has written more than twenty works, including novels, novellas, short stories, and nonfiction, which have resulted in numerous adaptations as plays and films. One Hundred Years of Solitude alone has sold more than thirty million copies throughout the world, with translations of his works appearing in thirty five languages. In this compact volume, gain an understanding of García Márquez the man and his most respected works. MEET THE AUTHOR Angela Bussone received a juris doctor and Advanced Legal Research, Writing and Drafting Certificate from Florida Coastal School of Law, where she served on the Law Review Board as technical editor. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of North Florida, where she was president of the Playwrights' Club, Features Editor for the school's newspaper, and wrote a play selected for the New South Young Playwrights Festival at the Horizon Theatre Co. Her writings have appeared in The Florida Times-Union, where she was a writer; the Florida Coastal Law Review, and in various publications and academic journals. She lives in a small coastal town in Northeast Florida with her husband and six-pound Persian cat, where she performs as violinist and composes songs for an Americana band, supports the local symphony and artists, and volunteers her time with organizations devoted to encouraging literacy, protection and enjoyment of the ocean, and preventing homelessness. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Although García Márquez has permeated the literary world and has been just as equally embraced, his career has not been without controversy. Last September of 2011, The Guardian reported copies of García Márquez's book, News of a Kidnapping, had sold out in Iran because of comments by opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi, who was reported in The Guardian as saying the book's account of kidnappings in Colombia as "an accurate reflection of his life under house arrest." News of a Kidnapping gives the account of the kidnappings of prominent Colombians in the 1990s under the direction of Pablo Escobar. A piece in The Atlantic by William Kennedy uncovers the financial strain during this period for the family, and how Mercedes got the family through it by selling most of the couple's possessions and borrowing twelve thousand dollars from family and friends. García Márquez told Kennedy he was unaware of how Mercedes was able to provide during this time, but never asked any questions. Yet a supply of whiskey and "[g]ood Scotch" was always on hand for the writer and future Nobel Prize winner in his Mexico City "Cave of the Mafia" writing space, where he spent eight to ten hours a day writing.

Gabriel Garcia Marquez in Retrospect gathers fifteen essays by noted scholars in the fields of Latin American literature, politics, and theater. The volume offers broad overviews of the Colombian author’s total body of work, along with closer looks at some of his acknowledged masterpieces. The Nobel laureate’s cultural contexts and influences, his variety of themes, and his formidable legacy (Hispanic, U.S., world-wide) all come up for consideration. New readings of One Hundred Years of Solitude are further complemented by fresh, stimulating, highly detailed examinations of his later novels (Chronicle of a Death Foretold, The General in His Labyrinth, Of Love and Other Demons) and stories (Strange Pilgrims). Further attention is focused on “Gabo’s” labors as journalist and as memoirist (Living to Tell the Tale), and to his sometime relationships with the cinema and the stage. Reactions to his enormous stature on the part of younger writers, including recent signs of backlash, are also given thoughtful scrutiny. Feminist and ecocritical interpretations, plus lively discussions of Gabo’s artful use of humor, character’s names, and even cuisine, are to be found here as well. In the wake of García Márquez’s passing away in 2014, this collection of essays serves as a fitting tribute to one of the world’s greatest literary figures of the twentieth century.
