Several experts claim that Colombia’s most famous writer, Gabriel García Márquez, won’t be writing any more books.
Gerard Martin, who recently published a biography of Márquez, commented on the writer’s future: “I don’t think ‘Gabo’ will write more books. But I don’t consider it a bad thing. As a writer, he was destined to have the great satisfaction of forming an entirely coherent career,” he told newspaper La Tercera
Spanish literary agent Carmen Balcells recently made a similar statement.
“I think García Márquez won’t ever write again, and he is a client that represents 36.2 percent of our income.”
Márquez, born in Aracataca, Magdalena and currently 81 years old, gained international fame with books as ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ and ‘Love in the Time of Cholera’. In 1982, the Colombian won the Nobel Prize in Literature.
