Gabriel Garcia Marquez, affectionately known as Gabo, is one of the most influential authors of the last 100 years. Hailing from Colombia, his quintessentially Latin American narratives immerse readers in illuminated realities, where a sense of magic amplifies the minutest of details. Known as magical realism, today the genre is seen in a range of fictional works, but none of its practitioners are as widely celebrated as Gabo. He is credited with popularizing magical realism on an international scale. For this and his dedication to outstanding fiction, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1982. Of Love and Other Demons is an important contribution to his canon as well. It is the story of Sierva Maria de Todos Los Angeles, a young girl with uncut hair who is imbued with magic from birth. With romance, exorcisms, and longing, the work contains some of Marquez’s best themes.
