In 1967, Sudamericana Press published “One Hundred Years of Solitude” (Cien años de soledad), a novel written by a little known Colombian author named Gabriel García Márquez. Neither the writer nor the publisher expected much of the book. Unexpectedly, One Hundred Years of Solitude went on to sell over 45 million copies, solidified its stature as a literary classic, and garnered García Márquez fame and acclaim as one of the greatest Spanish-language writers in history. The novel topped the list of books that have most shaped world literature over the last 25 years. Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton, and Barack Obama include it on their favorite book lists.
