Gabriel García Márquez May Not Publish Again

marquez.jpgFollowing last year’s rumors of a new novel, news has again resurfaced that Gabriel García Márquez will not add another book to his Nobel Prize-winning body of work.

“I don’t think that García Márquez will write anything else,” said Carmen Balcells, the writer’s agent, in a newspaper interview. Even the author’s biographer, Gerald Martin, thought this time was final.

Martin told the Guardian: “I also believe that Gabo won’t write any more books, but I don’t think this is too regrettable, because as a writer it was his destiny to have the immense satisfaction of having a totally coherent literary career many years before the end of his natural life.” (Via Gawker)
