He is painfully aware, though, of the presence in Mexico of another Colombian, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, whom he knows as "el Papa Grande." When Ventura searches the bookstores for his own novel, published in Buenos Aires years ago, all he finds are multiple editions of Cien anos de soledad
It was during his first stay in Mexico that Garcia Marquez wrote his best-known novel, Cien anos de soledad
(1967; One Hundred Years of Solitude), which recounts the history of Macondo and its founders, the Buendia family.
