University of Texas secures Garcia Marquez archive

The archive of celebrated Colombian novelist and Nobel laureate Gabriel Garcia Marquez has been acquired by the University of Texas – meaning that the critic of United States foreign policy is having his papers end up in a country he wasn't always too fond of, reports Associated Press.

The Harry Ransom Center, a top literary archive located on the university’s Austin campus, announced that the collection spans more than 50 years and features original manuscript material for 10 books, including Marquez’s acclaimed 1967 novel, One Hundred Years of Solitude.

Also included are drafts of his acceptance speech for his 1982 Nobel Prize in literature and 2,000 pieces of correspondence, such as letters to novelists Carlos Fuentes and Graham Greene. There are also typewriters and computers used by Garcia Marquez, who lived most of his life in Mexico City and died there in April at age 87.
