Living To Tell the Tale.


Item Number: 88785

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2003.

First edition in English of the Nobel Prize-winning author’s memoir. Octavo, original boards. Boldly signed by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who has added a drawing of a large flower. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Carol Devine Carson. Translated by Edith Grossman. A unique example, rare and desirable with the drawing by Garcia Marquez.

Here is García Márquez's shimmering evocation of his childhood home of Aracataca, the basis of the fictional Macondo. Here are the members of his ebulliently eccentric family. Here are the forces that turned him into a writer. Warm, revealing, abounding in images so vivid that we seem to be remembering them ourselves, Living to Tell the Tale is a work of enchantment.
