The Scandal of the Century: And Other Writings (Paperback)

Quick Overview

Collected here for the first time: a selection of the great writer’s journalism, which he considered more important to his legacy than his acclaimed novels.

“I don’t want to be remembered for One Hundred Years of Solitude or for the Nobel Prize but rather for my journalism,” Gabriel García Márquez said in the final years of his life. And while some of his journalistic writings have been made available over the years, this is the first volume to gather a representative selection from across the first four decades of his career—years during which he worked as a full-time, often muckraking and controversial journalist, even as he penned the fiction that would bring him the Nobel Prize in 1982.

Collected here for the first time: a selection of the great writer’s journalism, which he considered more important to his legacy than his acclaimed novels.

“I don’t want to be remembered for One Hundred Years of Solitude or for the Nobel Prize but rather for my journalism,” Gabriel García Márquez said in the final years of his life. And while some of his journalistic writings have been made available over the years, this is the first volume to gather a representative selection from across the first four decades of his career—years during which he worked as a full-time, often muckraking and controversial journalist, even as he penned the fiction that would bring him the Nobel Prize in 1982. Here are the first pieces he wrote while working in the Colombian cities of Cartagena and Barranquilla…his longer, more fiction-like reportage from Paris and Rome…his monthly columns for Spain’s El País. These fifty pieces are a revelation of the writer working at the profession he believed to be “the best in the world.”
