Colombian Nobel Prize for Literature Gabriel Garcia Marquez he had a secret daughter more than 30 years ago with the journalist Susana Cato, as revealed this Monday, January 17, by the journalist and writer Gustavo Tatis Guerra on the pages of ‘The Universal of Cartagena’.

Dasso Sladívar, biographer of García Márquez, It started from a “rumor” shortly after the death in 2014 of the author of ‘The colonel has no one to write to him’ and did research to confirm this story on his own. After having tied the information and “keep the secret for years out of respect for Mercedes Barcha, ‘Gabo’s wife, and their children“, He contacted Tatis Guerra to make it public.

The journalist himself contrasted the information with some relatives of García Márquez. ANDhe Colombian writer and Susana Cato knew each other and had written scripts together for a feature film and a short film, in addition to sharing other jobs.

Indira Cato is a film production company that in 2020 won more than fifteen awards with the production and script of its first documentary, ‘Take my loves’ (2014), directed by Arturo González Villaseñor. Tatis Guerra also reveals how this news was accepted at the García Márquez house.

In this regard, remember that Rodrigo García Barcha, Gabo’s eldest son, gave a wink in his book ‘Gabo and Mercedes, a farewell’, by subtly alluding to his father’s private life at the funerals at the Palacio de las Bellas Artes.

It is very likely that Mercedes sensed what had happened between Susana and García Márquez, but until the end of her life she maintained discretion and silence.. However, the revelation of Indira’s existence was a family cataclysm that is only spoken of through the tense and complex realm of law and lawyers,” the information concludes.
