Gabriel Garcia Marquez: a Life by Gerald MartinAmazing, just amazing. Gerald Martin kept me reading, barely able to put this book down. I must, however, warn that this remarkable book is probably aimed for a couple of special audiences: First,the readers who are big fans of Garcia Marquez and who have read many of his works. I am one of those. I was intrigued by the many insights that Martin gave into the writings of this Nobel prize-winning author, and the experiences that led him to writing his magical realism stories. Second, the readers who are interested in Latin American politics. Garcia Marquez was a life-long socialist and close friend of Fidel Castro of Cuba and Marcos Perez Jimenez of Venezuela, as well as other world leaders of the left, becoming increasingly embroiled and influential in socialist politics as his fame grew. Gerald Martin has written an account so detailed that I am sure it will be a classic reference for both of these audiences.
