An amazing writer leaves us. The humble (and humbling) author of the incredible book 100 Years of Solitude, died today at 87. Gabriel Garcîa Márquez, winner of the Nobel Prize for literature in1982, was the master of “magic realism.” Love in the Time of Cholera was an equally riveting book (humbling work). Here’s a link to a great obituary of this literary giant.
