    In his novels and short stories, Gabriel García Márquez has transformed the particulars of his own life and the lives of his fellow Colombians into wondrous fiction. While telling the story of the sloppily dressed, skinny young man who rose from obscurity as a provincial journalist to international fame as the progenitor of a new literature, Gerald Martin also considers the tensions in García Márquez's life between celebrity and the personal quest for literary quality, between politics and writing, and between the seductions of power, solitude, and love.

    Seth says: "Great content, somewhat disappointing narrator."

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sean Crisden?

    Anyone who speaks fluent Spanish and English. Crisden's phonetic errors when pronouncing Spanish words used in the text were embarrassing. He also occasionally decided to pronounce words in English with a Spanish accent, like "Latin America" for example. While a few mistakes would have been completely understandable, the frequency with which Crisden made mistakes became a bit annoying.
