García Márquez is the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, which he was awarded in 1982 for his best-known work, One Hundred Years of Solitude (1967). He has been amazingly successful, for by mid-1988 his Love in the Time of Cholera (1986, American edition 1988) had sold close to two million copies throughout the world. Critics often comment on the combination of magic and realism that he interweaves within his writings, although in Love in the Time of Cholera he deals primarily with realism. He is also the author of the incredibly popular short story, "A Very Old man With Enormous Wings."
