Columbian author Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s archive has opened to researchers at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas.

The center’s director, Stephen Enniss, said: “With the establishment of the Gabriel García Márquez archive, Gabo has entered history.

“Like a character in one of his own novels, he has entered a place outside of time. Somewhere among these papers Florentino Ariza still waits outside the house of his first love; somewhere a colonel waits patiently for the weekly post.

“An archive is a timeless thing, and for years to come the materials that have been collected here will give up, to those who are patient, insights into the art of García Márquez.”
