A collection of 15 works written by Gabriel Garcia Marquez went on sale Tuesday throughout Latin America to commemorate the 30-year anniversary of the Colombian writer’s Nobel Prize for Literature.
“Gabriel Garcia Marquez For All” is sold in Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Panama, Peru and Venezuela, and includes a variety of his works ranging from novels, to short stories and news publications.
“This publication is the first of its kind to offer accessibility to all of the works, for this price and distribution. There is also the possibility to buy a special case for the 15 books to commemorate this edition,” noted Henao Brigard, the editor responsible for the anniversary edition.
The collection consists of “One Hundred Years of Solitude,” ” Chronicle of a Death Foretold,” “Of Love and Other Demons,” “Strange Pilgrims,” “Love in the Time of Cholera,” “The Colonel No One Writes,” “The General in His Labyrinth,” “The Autumn of the Patriarch,” “Litter,” “The Incredible and Sad Tale of Innocent Erendira and Her Heartless Grandmother,” “Bad Time,” “Funerals Big Mama,” “News of a Kidnapping,” “Eyes of a Blue Dog,” and “Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor.”
Marquez, 85, has been out of the public eye in recent months, after his brother, Jaime Garcia Marquez, said in early July the acclaimed author was suffering from dementia and serious memory problems, despite earlier contradictions regarding his health.
