A FAREWELL TO GABO AND MERCEDES A Sons Memoir of Gabriel García Márquez and Mercedes Barcha

by | Read by Rodrigo Garcia

Biography & Memoir • 2.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Rodrigo Garcia narrates his brief but powerful memoir about the passing of his parents. His father was the literary giant Gabriel García Márquez. His mother, Mercedes Barcha, was also a giant--of their family. Garcia narrates the events of the months leading up to their deaths with tactical precision that can come across as emotionless. However, his reservation allows listeners to focus on the words and feelings of his mother, brother, and the plethora of people who paid tribute to his father. Fans of García Márquez will want to listen, of course, but anyone who has lost a family member will also want to hear this audiobook. A.R.F. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2021]
