Plot summary and introduction, from the publisher of the U.S. edition.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez' Nobel Prize acceptance speeches in English and Spanish (with a recording in Spanish only).
There are plenty of biographies of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, but if you don't want to know every detail of his life and just want to read something short, I highly recommend Sean Dolan's richly-illustrated book, simply titled Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It has dozens of photos of the author, his hometown, and the one-room shack he grew up in, all of which help the reader to visualize the settings of his novels.
