News Of A Kidnapping

Gabriel García Márquez

Service95 Recommends is the home of the books we love and our contributors' reviews. News Of A Kidnapping by Gabriel García Márquez explores one of the most important moments in Columbian history, from one of the world's most talented writers.

What Patrick Radden Keefe Says: “This account by García Márquez was a source of inspiration to me while I was writing, for the ways in which he grapples with a complex history of violence, and for the artistry of his narrative journalism.”

What They Say: “Márquez uses his novelist's instinct for emotional drama to give the reader a wonderfully immediate sense of his subjects' ordeal: their spiraling hopes and fears, their fantasies of escape, their desperation and despair” — New York Times

Available on, Waterstones and Barnes & Noble
