"A conjurer of literary magic"-The New York Times

Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez was one of the most widely translated and beloved writers of his time, and yet, as this revelatory book shows, there were many sides of him that English-language readers do not know.

This volume includes the first-ever English translation of Garcia Marquez's final conversation with Spanish journalist Xavi Ayen, along with other rare and never-before-translated interviews from throughout his long career.

Garcia Marquez discusses his extraordinarily varied literary work and his often controversial politics, and what emerges is a richer, deeper, more intimate portrait of this great writer than we've encountered before.

A new series of pocket-sized interview collections, featuring conversations with some of the iconic writers and thinkers of our time.
