Perspectives on the Life and Works of Gabriel García Márquez: Caribbean Troubadour (Hardcover)
Perspectives on the life and works of Gabriel Garc a M rquez: Caribbean Troubadour explores both the big picture and the small details about the Colombian Nobel Prize winner: his development as an artist, the construction of his public persona, the characteristics and the significance of his most relevant works, the secrets and the agonies of his trade, the blurred line between fact and fiction, and the recurrent themes of solitude, truth, love. Arango brings special attention to Garc a M rquez's Caribbean background, as well as the deep roots of his works in the tradition of the medieval troubadours. Archival materials, never before published in English, give the final touches to this portrayal of one of the most influential Latin American writers of the twentieth century.
