Show Summary Details


In this chapter, García Márquez the apprentice and young writer is examined. The early Gabo writes mostly of death and isolation, of souls and bodies trapped in graves and dreams, much different from the Gabo who wrote his revered novel. A morose and brooding García Márquez is seen in his stories such as The Other Side of Death and Eva is Inside her Cat. Also discussed here is García Márquez's novel Leaf Storm and its resemblances to Faulkner's As I Lay Dying. Another novel examined is In Evil Hour, which García Márquez wrote before One Hundred Years of Solitude.
