If you studied Spanish, if you studied English, if you studied literature of any kind, you likely read some of them. Here are some of his greatest insights to carry with you, on life and love. On happiness "No medicine cures what happiness cannot. On aging "It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.
The studio is a short walk from the main house. A low elongated building, it appears to have been originally designed as a guest house. Within, at one end, are a couch, two easy chairs, and a makeshift bar—a small white refrigerator with a supply of acqua minerale on top.
He came to greet me, walking briskly with a light step. He is a solidly built man, only about five feet eight or nine in height, who looks like a good middleweight fighter—broad-chested, but perhaps a bit thin in the legs. He was dressed casually in corduroy slacks with a light turtleneck sweater and black leather boots.
His hair is dark and curly brown and he wears a full mustache. The interview took place over the course of three late-afternoon meetings of roughly two hours each.
His hands too are often in motion making small but decisive gestures to emphasize a point, or to indicate a shift of direction in his thinking. He alternates between leaning forward towards his listener, and sitting far back with his legs crossed when speaking reflectively.
How do you feel about using the tape recorder? In my case I immediately take a defensive attitude. The best way, I feel, is to have a long conversation without the journalist taking any notes.
Then afterward he should reminisce about the conversation and write it down as an impression of what he felt, not necessarily using the exact words expressed. Another useful method is to take notes and then interpret them with a certain loyalty to the person interviewed. What ticks you off about the tape recording everything is that it is not loyal to the person who is being interviewed, because it even records and remembers when you make an ass of yourself.
I have a very good tape recorder, but I just use it to listen to music. The sailor would just tell me his adventures and I would rewrite them trying to use his own words and in the first person, as if he were the one who was writing. When the work was published as a serial in a newspaper, one part each day for two weeks, it was signed by the sailor, not by me.
Do you do it with a different feel or a different eye? Besides, I had to condition my thoughts and ideas to the interests of the newspaper. Now, after having worked as a novelist, and having achieved financial independence as a novelist, I can really choose the themes that interest me and correspond to my ideas.
In any case, I always very much enjoy the chance of doing a great piece of journalism. I have written about Portugal, Cuba, Angola, and Vietnam.
I would very much like to write on Poland. I think if I could describe exactly what is now going on, it would be a very important story. The sources are the same, the material is the same, the resources and the language are the same. In contrast, in fiction one single fact that is true gives legitimacy to the entire work.
A novelist can do anything he wants so long as he makes people believe in it. Then at night, after everyone had gone home, I would stay behind writing my novels. I liked the noise of the Linotype machines, which sounded like rain.
Now, the output is comparatively small. Before I could read or write I used to draw comics at school and at home.
The funny thing is that I now realize that when I was in high school I had the reputation of being a writer, though I never in fact wrote anything.
If there was a pamphlet to be written or a letter of petition, I was the one to do it because I was supposedly the writer. When I entered college I happened to have a very good literary background in general, considerably above the average of my friends.One Hundred Years of Solitude (Spanish: Cien años de soledad, American Spanish: [sjen ˈaɲoz ðe soleˈðað]) is a landmark novel by Colombian author Gabriel García Márquez that tells the multi-generational story of the Buendía family, whose patriarch, José Arcadio Buendía, founded the town of Macondo, a fictitious town in the country of .
Gabo is one of my favorite authors. His unique genre of magic realism oftentimes released my imagination to wander with wonder. I feel Gabo's style of writing expressed occasional poetic outbursts - outbursts that were akin to epiphanies striking his pen like lightning.
