ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Finalist of the 2021 National Book Critics Circle

This is the intimate account of a great genius' last days.

In March 2014, Gabriel Garc a M rquez, probably the most beloved Spanish language writer of the 20th century, at that time elderly and ill, came down with a cold. I don't think we'll get out of this one, Mercedes Barcha, his wife of over fifty years, told Rodrigo, their son. These pages are the most intimate and honest accounts of the last days of that genius' life. It is written with amazing meticulousness and with just the right amount of distance by an exceptional witness: Rodrigo himself.

Thus we see the most human side of a universal figure and of the woman he laid his eyes on when they were both very young, the woman who accompanied him his entire life and who barely survived him for a few years after his death, peppered with memories of a unique life. This is the most beautiful farewell to the telegrapher's son and his wife.
