This Day in History

Gabriel García Márquez’s masterpiece, “One Hundred Years of Solitude,” was first published in Argentina on May 30, 1967. This novel introduced the world to Magical Realism, blending the real with the fantastic to tell the multi-generational story of the Buendía family in the fictional town of Macondo. The book became an instant classic, profoundly influencing not just Latin American literature but also global storytelling, earning Márquez the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1982.
