An oral history biography of the legendary Latin American writer and Nobel laureate Gabriel Garcia MArquez, brimming with atmosphere and insightIrreverent and hopeful, Solitude and Company recounts the life of a boy from the provinces who decided to become a writer. This is the story of how he did it, how little Gabito became Gabriel Garcia MArquez, and of how Gabriel Garcia MArquez survived his own self-creation.The book is divided into two parts. In the first, BC, before Cien aNos de soledad (One Hundred Years of Solitude), we hear from his siblings and those who were friends before Garcia MArquez became the universally loved Latin American icon. The second part, AC, describes the man behind the legend that Garcia MArquez became. From Aracataca, to Baranquila, to Bogota, to Paris, to Mexico City, the solitude that Garcia MArquez needed to produce his masterpiece turns out to have been something of a raucous party whenever he wasn't actually writing. Here are the writers TomAs Eloy Martinez, Edmundo Paz SoldAn, and William and Rose Styron; legendary Spanish agent Carmen Balcells; the translator of A Hundred Years of Solitude, Gregory Rabassa; Gabo's brothers Luis Enrique, Jaime, Eligio, and Gustavo, and his sisters Aida and Margot; Maria Luisa Elio, to whom A Hundred Years of Solitude is dedicated; and many others.
