Ascent to Glory: How "One Hundred Years of Solitude" Was Written and Became a Global Classic (Columbia University Press, 2020) is a groundbreaking study of Gabriel García Márquez's novel from its inception to global consecration. Using new documents from the author’s archives, Álvaro Santana-Acuña goes beyond the many legends that surround it, to show how a novel that was destined for obscurity became among one of the bestselling books of all time.

Santana-Acuña unveils the literary ideas and networks that made the book’s creation and initial success possible. He then follows this novel’s path in more than 70 countries on five continents and explains how thousands of people and organizations have helped it to become a global classic.
