The purchase of Gabriel García Márquez’s documents by the Ransom Center raised objections among some scholars. The location of the archive ignited a debate on the right of custody of those papers and on their importance. We reflect on the meaning of those debates and revisit his legacy, focusing on the archive’s materiality and the experience of his readership.
