An intimate and lively collection of interviews with a giant of twentieth century literature—the only collection of interviews with Marquez available
Hailed by the New York Times as a "conjurer of literary magic," Nobel Prizewinning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez is known to millions of readers worldwide as the author of One Hundred Years of Solitude. Beloved by readers of nearly all ages, he is surely the most popular literary novelist in translation—and he remains so today, a decade after the publication of his final novel.
In addition to the first-ever English translation of Marquezs last interview, this unprecedented volume includes his first interview, conducted while he was in the throes of writing One Hundred Years of Solitude, which reveals the young writer years before the extraordinary onslaught of success that would make him a household name around the world. Also featured is a series of unusually wide-ranging conversations with Marquezs friend Plinio Apuleyo Mendoza —surely the only interview with Marquez that includes the writers insights into both the meaning of true love and the validity of superstitions. Gabriel Garcia Marquez: The Last Interview also contains two interviews with Pulitzer Prizewinning New York Times reporter David Streitfeld.
A wide-ranging and revealing book, Gabriel Garcia Marquez: The Last Interview is an essential book for lifelong fans of Marquez—and readers who are just getting encountering the masters work for the first time.
