News Of A Kidnapping - 1st US Edition/1st Printing
Gabriel García Márquez, Edith Grossman
A beautiful First US Edition/First Printing in As New/As New condition, SIGNED and DATED by AUTHOR Gabriel García Márquez on title page;
This non-fiction account of the orchestrated kidnappings of ten Colombian journalists by the Medellin drug cartel in 1990 reads more like the dreamy fiction of Nobel Prize winning author Gabriel García Márquez than any non-fiction. Márquez began his book as the story of only one of the kidnapped journalists but early on recognized the need to expand his work to include all the others. Behind the demands of powerful cartel leader Pablo Escobar was protection from extradition to the US for drug trafficking.
