Here in the agency we've been representing Spanish and Latin American authors for more than thirty years. And the literature in Spanish of the last three decades cannot be understood without Gabriel García Márquez. We are deeply sorry for the passing away of an author to which we, just like every other reader, owe much, starting with a gratitude that should last more than a hundred years, but not filled with solitude, but with the good company of his books.
To remember Gabo, we bring you three titles: the three of them written by Plinio Apuleyo Mendoza, Colombian writer and journalist and a personal friend of García Márquez, to whose life and works he has dedicated many pages. Like the ones in El olor de la guayaba (The Fragrance of the Guava) (Random House Mondadori / RBA), a long conversation among friends that illuminates the creative world of the genius from Aracataca. Or those in Aquellos tiempos con Gabo (Those Times With Gabo), published by Plaza y Janés / DeBols!llo, that was a great success in Latin America. Or what probably is the jewel of the collection: Gabo. Cartas y recuerdos (Gabo. Letters and memories), in Ediciones B, that delivers what its title promises and something else: an intimate profile of a García Márquez away from fame, success, celebrity: the García Márquez that was just Gabo.
As a bonus, we offer you this video in CNN México, where Mendoza explains Gabo's influences: Kafka, Faulkner, Woolf and many more...
