The Blessed Mania of Telling Stories gathers, next to How to Tell a Story and I’m in Rent for Dreaming, the experiences obtained in the Cinematographic Workshop coordinated by the Nobel Award of Literature. In this volume, Gabriel García Márquez collects impressions on the act of telling stories. In the words of the very own Colombian narrator, the lineage of the griots and storytellers in markets and plazas is dealt and exalted, preserved and enriched; a lineage which is not doomed to spend one hundred years of solitude nor is it meant to suffer the curse of Babel. It’s an indispensable book for those who want to become initiated in the art of writing, as well as for those who wish to understand the deep mechanisms ruling that art.
