Summary How did a boy from a tiny town on the Caribbean coast become a writer who won the hearts of millions? How did he change our perception of reality with his work? The answers lie in the incredible story of Gabriel García Márquez, the 1982 Nobel Prize winner in Literature. A law-school dropout and political journalist who grew up in the poverty and violence of northern Colombia, Gabriel García Márquez became the writer of globally celebrated, critically-acclaimed books including Love in the Time of Cholera andOne Hundred Years of Solitude. Known as "Gabo" to all of Latin America, Gabriel García Márquez's sensual, "magical" sensibility leds him to the forefront of the political struggles of the 1970s and 1980s-including a pivotal and previously unknown role in negotiations between Cuban leader Fidel Castro and American President Bill Clinton-and into the hearts of readers across the world. In addition to Clinton himself, the documentary GABO: THE CREATION OF GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ includes former Colombian president César Gaviria along with writers Juan Gabriel Vásquez and Plinio Apuleyo Mendoza; journalists Enrique Santos, María Jimena Duzán and Xavi Ayén; New Yorker correspondent and author Jon Lee Anderson; biographer Gerald Martin; literary agent Carmen Balcells; and siblings Aída and Jaime García Márquez in its thoughtful and personal study of the writer's life and legacy.
