This translation originally published: New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2019
A new collection of journalism from one of the great titans of 20th century literature. And while some of his journalistic writings have been made available over the years, this is the first volume to gather a representative selection from across the first four decades of Marquez' career - years during which he worked as a full-time, often muckraking, and controversial journalist, even as he penned the fiction that would bring him the Nobel Prize in 1982. Here are the first pieces he wrote while working for newspapers in the coastal Colombian cities of Cartagena and Barranquilla; his longer, more fiction like reportage from Paris and Rome; his monthly columns for Spain's El Pais. And while all the work points in style, wit, depth, and passion to his fiction, these 50 pieces are, more than anything, a revelation of the writer working at the profession he believed to be 'the best in the world'.
