Tying up more loose ends…
Some of you may have noticed the sidebar with resources for the Slaves of Golconda. Since we are moving on to Wilde now I wanted to collect those resources here for future reference.
The book: Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel García Márquez
The background: Literary Masters: Gabriel García Márquez
A compact but comprehensive guide to Gabo’s life and works. Too bad there isn’t one like this on Oscar Wilde.
The discussion: MetaxuCafé Forum
The online resource: Macondo
An extensive (and beautiful) website about Gabriel García Márquez.
From the man himself: Living to Tell the Tale (Vivir Para Contarla)
The first volume of Gabo’s three-volulme autobiography.
A bit about Colombia: on Wikipedia
