Publisher Description

Nobel Prize winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez was one of the most widely translated writers of his time, and yet there were many sides of him that English-language readers do not know. This volume includes the first-ever English translation of Marquez's final conversation, along with other rare and never-before-translated interviews from throughout his long career. Marquez discusses his varied literary work and his controversial politics, and what emerges is a richer, deeper, more intimate portrait of this great writer than we've encountered before.
