García Márquez: historia de un deicidio / García Márquez: Story of a Deicide
Non-fiction , 1971
Simultaneously a doctoral thesis and show of admiration, this book is based on a study that earned the author a Ph.D. from the Complutense University of Madrid. The original thesis title was García Márquez: lengua y estructura de su obra narrativa (García Márquez: Language and Structure of His Narrative Works), which received a grade of Summa Cum Laude on 25 June 1971. This is an in-depth analysis of the works of Gabriel García Márquez, Vargas Llosa’s comrade in arms – so to speak – in the Latin American literary boom.
