About Gabriel García Marquez:

Considered one of the most significant authors in the 20th century, Gabriel García Marquez was a journalist, screenwriter, short story author, and novelist. Though his nonfiction and short stories are regarded highly, he is most well-known for his novels such as One Hundred Years of Solitude, The Autumn of the Patriarch, and Love in the Time of Cholera. Through his work he attained the Neustadt International Prize for Literature (1972) and the Noble Prize in Literature (1982), as well as popularized the genre of “magic realism”.
