Gabriel Garcia Marquez is Latin America's most internationally famous and successful author, and a winner of the Nobel Prize. His oeuvre of great modern novels includes One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera. His name has become closely associated with Magical Realism, a phenomenon that has been immensely influential in world literature. This Companion, first published in 2010, includes new and probing readings of all of Garcia Marquez's works, by leading international specialists. His life in Colombia, the context of Latin American history and culture, key themes in his works and their critical reception are explored in detail. Written for students and readers of Garcia Marquez, the Companion is accessible for non-Spanish speakers and features a chronology and a guide to further reading. This insightful and lively book will provide an invaluable framework for the further study and enjoyment of this major figure in world literature.

'... deserves a place too in the libraries of academic institutions where courses are offered on modern Latin American literature. ... maintains the high standards already set by other volumes in the series.' Reference Reviews 'The Cambridge Companion to Gabriel Garcia Marquez does not shun a critical perspective on a major writer. It offers a balanced overview of his work, and thoughtful analysis for a new generation of readers.' Bulletin of Latin American Research '... an engagingly diverse and lively overview of Garcia Marquez's oeuvre, not only offering many new insights into the major texts but also examining the less studied non-fictional works and cinematic adaptations.' Lloyd Hughes Davis, Modern Language Review
