The Life and Works of Gabriel García Márquez

Posted on September 11th, 2014

Gabriel García Márquez:
March 6, 1927 – April 17, 2014

As a young boy growing up in Aracataca, Colombia, Gabriel García Márquez probably had little idea that he would one day be an author writing stories based on his home town, and still less that upon his death his country’s president would proclaim him “the greatest Colombian who ever lived.”  Best known for the autobiographical novel Love in the Time of Cholera that was released as a motion picture in 2007, “Gabo” was also awarded the 1972 Neustadt International Prize for Literature and the 1982 Nobel Prize for Literature. The author’s works earned him both critical acclaim and commercial success, especially as they popularized “magic realism”, a literary style that uses magical elements and events in ordinary, realistic situations.

In celebration of the life of Gabriel García Márquez, the following resources from the library’s collection were on display during the spring and summer of 2014 in the 3000 S corridor of Booth Library.  Unless otherwise noted, these are the works of García Márquez.  Visit the library to check out the books, or follow the links below to the catalog record or the electronic book.
