(AP) A lesser-known side of Colombian novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez is celebrated and analyzed in a new book that comes on the 30th anniversary of his being awarded the Nobel literature prize.


It's called Gabo, periodista, the 85-year-old author's nickname and the Spanish-language word for journalist. It will initially be published in his native language in Colombia and in Mexico, where the writer lives.


The 512-page volume includes reportage by Garcia Marquez and commentary from such well-known journalists as Jon Lee Anderson and Alma Guillermoprieto.


The author of One Hundred Years of Solitude was presented a copy last week at his Mexico City home.


Published in part by the Colombia-based journalism institute that Garcia Marquez founded, the book was being launched Tuesday at the Guadalajara International Book Fair.
