Description
Few contemporary writers are more revered by Americans than Gabriel García Márquez, the Nobel Prize–winning Colombian author of Love in the Time of Cholera and One Hundred Years of Solitude, while few political leaders are more reviled here than Cuban revolutionary and dictator Fidel Castro. In this exposé of their seemingly unlikely friendship, Márquez scholars Ángel Esteban and Stéphanie Panichelli examine this strange, intimate, and controversial connection.

"The Colombian's evident fascination with Castro demonstrates that literary geniuses are not immune to the blandishments of power."—Washington Post

"On the surface their friendship is chummy and literary: Castro drops by García Márquez's Havana mansion—a gift from Castro himself—for endless conversation and critiques his manuscripts. But the authors view the men's bond as corrupt and neurotic: García Márquez, obsessed with power in both his fiction and real life, gets political influence; Castro, in turn, gets cultural prestige and a matchless propagandist. The authors condemn García-Márquez's public silence over Cuban censorship and human rights violations.... Their study tellingly rebukes the Left's propensity for blinding itself to the failings of the Cuban revolution by glamorizing its leaders."—Publishers Weekly
