Titled “En agosto nos vemos”, which could be translated as “We we will see in August”, this unpublished novel is the fruit of a “last effort” of the writer to “continue to write against winds and tides”, explain his sons, Rodrigo and Gonzalo García Barcha, quoted in the press release.< /p>
We find “the most remarkable aspects” of García Márquez's work, such as “his imagination, the poetry of the language, the captivating narration, his understanding of human beings and his affection for their experiences and their misfortunes, especially in love, perhaps the main theme of all his work”, they underline.
Born on March 6, 1927 in the city of Aracataca, in the north of Colombia, Gabriel García Márquez, journalist and writer, is the author of a long list of short stories and novels, such as “Chronicle of an announced death” and “Tale of a castaway”.
According to the Cervantes Institute, he is the most translated Spanish-language writer since the beginning of the 21st century, ahead of the Chilean Isabel Allende, the Argentinian Jorge Luis Borges and the Peruvian Mario Vargas Llosa, also a Nobel Prize winner.
