Gabriel García Márquez, (born March 6, 1927, Aracataca, Colombia—died April 17, 2014, Mexico City, Mexico),
Colombian novelist and one of the greatest writers of the 20th century, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982, mostly for his masterpiece Caen naos de Soledad (1967; One Hundred Years of Solitude).
He was the fourth Latin American to be so honored, having been preceded by Chilean poets Gabriela Mistral in 1945 and Pablo Neruda in 1971 and by Guatemalan novelist Miguel Angel Asturias in 1967.
With Jorge Luis Borges, García Márquez is the best-known Latin American writer in history.
In addition to his masterly approach to the novel, he was a superb crafter of short stories and an accomplished journalist.
In both his shorter and longer fictions, García Márquez achieved the rare feat of being accessible to the common reader while satisfying the most demanding of sophisticated critics.

The twelve stories in this new collection by the Nobel prize winner chronicle the surreal, haunting ‘journeys’ of Latin Americans in Europe.
Linked by themes of displacement and exile, these vivid, magical stories of love, loneliness, death and the memories of past life conjure images of beauty and horror at once ethereal and exquisitely sensual.
