Available in English for the first time in the U.S., a collection of the speeches of Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcìa Márquez.

Throughout his life, Gabriel Garcìa Márquez spoke publicly with the same passion and energy that marked his writing.

I'm Not Here to Give a Speech records key events throughout the author's life, from a farewell to his classmates delivered when he was only seventeen to his Nobel Prize acceptance speech. Written across a lifetime, these speeches chart the growth of a genius: each is a snapshot offering insights into the beliefs and ideas of a world- renowned storyteller. Preserving Garcìa Márquez's unmistakeable voice for future generations, I'm Not Here to Give a Speech is a must-have for anyone who ever fell in love with Macondo or cherished a battered copy of Love in the Time of Cholera.
