In Evil Hour (La mala hora) is a novel by Colombian writer Gabriel García Márquez, first published (in an edition disowned by the author) in 1962, republished in 1966, and translated into English by Gregory Rabassa in 1979. Written while García Márquez lived in Paris, the story was originally entitled Este pueblo de mierda (This Town of Shit or This Shitty Town). Rewritten, it won a literary prize in Colombia, and was an important early success for the future Nobel Prize-winning author.
