This biography of Gabriel García Márquez originates in two questions that had been obsessed for twenty years with Dasso Saldívar: Who is the man who wrote One hundred years of solitude, What is the historical, cultural, family and personal reality that underlies this prodigious novel? In search of an answer, the author traveled to the essential places of García Márquez, talked with the writer, his family and friends, conducted hundreds of interviews and inquired in archives and archives of several countries. The result is a complete and complex vision, profound and illuminating, indispensable to understand in all its scope the work of a writer who fascinates us all with his intention and his genius.
