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. Chronicle of a Death Foretold is an exceptional volume in his collection of works. It is probably his best novella and one of his most enduring works, displaying his unique talent for making the mundane magical.
