García Márquez

University of North Carolina Press

In this chapter, García Márquez and his many hats (writer, leftist, family man, and father) are examined. The discussion of García Márquez's life history begins in his early years as a curious child. His family, not just immediate but extended, had such impact in his life that some of his characters in his novel are based on them. The chapter also details accounts of the student years of García Márquez and how he developed his writing. Much discussion also centers on the career of García Márquez as a journalist and how he established himself as one of Colombia's literary genius.
