García Márquez. Una realidad mágica
Gabriel García Márquez is one of the most well-known writers in Spanish in the world. García Márquez. Una realidad mágica recounts the life of the Colombian author from his childhood in Aracataca to his death in 2014. The story follows his footsteps through Latin America and Europe, his interests and, of course, his literary life: from his first short stories published in newspapers to the success of One Hundred Years of Solitude. The writer is also portrayed from the viewpoint of his friends and young authors inspired by his work.
The personalities in the Grandes personajes collection stand out for their quality as artists and human beings. They all live in the memory of Spanish-speakers but their repetition has also reached across the borders of their countries. Each biography is about the life and works of one of the personalities. The books include photographs, a footnote Spanish glossary, and another glossary in several languages at the end of the book. In addition, all of the texts are accompanied with activities and come with an audio version of the text.
