I'm Not Here to Give a Speech, Hardback Book


For the first time, the speeches of prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez are translated into English and published together in a collected edition.

These writings span Marquez's entire life: from his earliest days, speaking as a teenager graduating high school, to his acceptance speech for the Nobel Prize.

Taken as a whole, this collection offers a unique and fascinating insight into Marquez's long career, highlighting his concerns and beliefs both as a writer and as a man. Marquez was beloved throughout his life and celebrated posthumously as a true literary genius.

This collection of previously unseen material, written in his distinctively rich and expressive style, will appeal to any Marquez fan.
