Living To Tell The Tale
by Gabriel García Márquez
In Living to Tell the Tale Gabriel García Márquez--winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize for Literature and author of One Hundred Years of Solitude--recounts his personal experience of returning to the house in which he grew up and the memories that this visit conjured.
Gabriel García Márquez was twenty-three, a young man experimenting with his writing when this mother asked him to come back with her to the village of his grandparents and the memories of his Colombian childhood.
In the first part of Gabriel García Márquez's memoir, the Nobel Prize-winning author returns to the atmosphere and influences that shaped his formidable imagination and formed the basis of his world-famous, and much-loved, fiction.
