Overdue Episode 229: One Hundred Years of Solitude, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

March 13, 2017

Andrew Cunningham Craig Getting

This week, we return to the works of Gabriel Garcia Marquez (“Gabo” to his friends) for the first time since our second-ever episode. This time around we get to dive deeper into “magical realism,” the sort of dreamy heightened reality that Marquez employs so successfully, and we also touch on the book’s relationship with Colombian history and our relationship with our own hometowns.

This week’s episode brought to you by Squarespace.
