Nobel prize-winner Gabriel Garcia Marquez is Latin America's most powerful literary symbol. In three decades, his novel One Hundred Years of solitude has sold over twenty million copies in more than thirty languages, to become the most famous and widely-read novel in Spanish since Cervantes Don Quixote.

Garcia Marquez for Beginners in introduces readers to the man and his magical realism, a style that expresses Latin American life and culture in many different layers of human perception. Garcia Marquez has pledged that everything he writes comes out of the real world, including gypsies on flying carpets, a woman ascending to heaven, body and soul, and a pries who levitates when he drinks chocolate.

This book pays an essential visit to the life and works of the intensely private Colombian writer who has been described as the world's most important living writer and is said to represent the voice and the spirit of Latin America.
