Description:

In 1967 the best-selling Latin American novel by the Colombian, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, was first published. It was immediately acclaimed as a literary masterpiece and went on to sell more than 30 million copies worldwide. We hear from Gerald Martin, the writer's biographer and friend for more than twenty years.

A Clear Message From Colombian Police: Don't Mess With '100 Years Of Solitude'

This is the story of a stolen book, a sense of national pride and some creative sleuthing. The book in question is a first edition copy of One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez. In 2015, it was stolen from a Bogota, Colombia, book fair. Many cases in that city go unsolved because of a lack of resources, but local law enforcement went all out to solve this crime.
