About the Author:

Gabriel García Márquez was born in 1927 in the town of Aracataca, Columbia.Latin America's preeminent man of letters, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1982. García Márquez began his writing career as a journalist and is the author of numerous other works of fiction and nonfiction, including the novels The Autumn of the Patriarch and Love in the Time of Cholera, and the autobiography Living to Tell the Tale. There has been resounding acclaim for his life's work since he passed away in April 2014.

Review:

''A rare combination of grace and vibrancy. Every scene, every gesture, signs life and denies death . . . He is an absolute master.'' --New York Times

''[These stories] are told in spare, unpretentious, but picturesque prose, compassionate of human frailty but also rich in wit and irony. The characters are all too human, alternately humorous and tragic.'' --Library Journal

''Garcia Marquez' style is direct and matter-of-fact; in attitude, he accepts these characters with the same inevitability as they accept the heat and the rain.'' --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

''García Márquez creates an absolute jewel of a novella in No One Writes to the Colonel, a story that evokes the entire range of human emotions from misplaced hope to blackest cynicism.'' --Oprah.com
