About the Author

Gene H. Bell-Villada is professor of Romance languages at Williams College.


Gene Bell-Villada's new collection of essays provides much for general readers, students and specialists alike, who are offered an array of critical approaches with which to spar, ranging from the contextual, biographical, literary and literary-historical to the ecocritical, demythifying and on occasion densely theoretical. Particularly welcome is the volume's emphasis on Garcia Marquez's later writing. -- Clive Griffin, Emeritus Fellow, Trinity College, University of Oxford
This exemplary collection of essays is illuminating, ample, accessible, and ultimately essential for understanding how Garcia Marquez is read today. -- Randolph D. Pope, University of Virginia
