This week is the anniversary of the birth of Gabriel García Márquez, the Colombian novelist who was affectionately known as Gabo in Latin America.

昨天是哥伦比亚小说家加夫列尔·加西亚·马尔克斯(Gabriel García Márquez)的诞辰周年纪念日,他在拉美被亲切地称为加博(Gabo)。

Born on March 6, 1927, García Márquez defined the writing style known as magical realism, but his escapades in real life were just as noteworthy.

加西亚·马尔克斯出生于1927年3月6日,他定义了被称为魔幻现实主义的写作风格,但他不同寻常的现实生活同样引人注目。

He started his career as a journalist, at one point enraging the Colombian dictator Gen. Gustavo Rojas Pinilla so much that García Márquez fled to Europe for two years.

他以记者身份起家,曾一度惹怒哥伦比亚独裁者古斯塔沃·罗哈斯·皮尼利亚将军(Gustavo Rojas Pinilla),不得不逃到欧洲生活了两年。

He became such close friends with Fidel Castro that he would show the Cuban leader drafts of his unpublished books.

他和菲德尔·卡斯特罗(Fidel Castro)成为了亲密的朋友,会向这位古巴领导人展示他未发表作品的草稿。

At one point, he vowed never to write as long as the Chilean dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet remained in power (a promise that was broken long before Pinochet’s 17-year reign ended).

他曾经发誓,只要智利独裁者奥古斯托·皮诺切特将军(Augusto Pinochet)还在掌权,就不再写作(这个誓言在皮诺切特17年的统治结束之前就早早被打破了)。

And after being denied a U.S. visa for more than three decades, García Márquez arrived in America for the first time in 1995, at the invitation of President Bill Clinton.

应美国总统比尔·克林顿的邀请,加西亚·马尔克斯在被美国拒签30多年后,于1995年首次抵达美国。

Before García Márquez died, in 2014, a friend said the title of Gabo’s memoir summed up his life: “All his motivation is contained in that title, ‘To Live to Tell It’ — it is the pleasure of telling the story,” Jaime Abello said.

在他2014年去世前,他的朋友杰米·阿韦略(Jaime Abello)说,加博的回忆录标题总结了他的一生:“他所有的动力都包含在那个标题里,‘活着,讲述’——就是为了讲故事的快乐。”
