|“Gabriel Garcia Marquez” appears in Iranian bookstores||
Qoqnus Publications released the book, which was translated by Bahman Farzaneh, who introduced Marquez’s acclaimed work “One Hundred Years of Solitude” to Iranians in 1979.
“Gabriel Garcia Marquez: A Life” is the first full and authorized biography of the 1982 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature — the most popular international novelist of the last fifty years, Garcia Marquez.
Over the course of the nearly two decades Gerald Martin gave to the research and writing of this masterly biography, he not only spent many hours in conversation with Gabriel Garcia Marquez himself but also interviewed more than three hundred others.
He conducted interviews with Garcia Marquez’s wife and sons, mother and siblings, literary agent and translators; Carlos Fuentes, Mario Vargas Llosa, and Alvaro Mutis, among other writers.
Fidel Castro and Felipe Gonzalez and other political figures, his closest friends as well as those who consider themselves his detractors are interviewed in the book.
Gerald Martin is Andrew W. Mellon Professor Emeritus of Modern Languages at the University of Pittsburgh and Senior Research Professor in Caribbean Studies at London Metropolitan University.
