RIP Gabriel Garcia Marques


One of my favorite authors died today at age 87. He was Columbian and captured me with his Book “Love in the Time of Cholera”; the story of a fifty year love affair. His autobiography, written when he thought he was dying, is special and worth reading. It is not a puff piece but a frank account of his life.

If you aspire to be a writer, or just like to read magical realism, you will enjoy his work. Peace.
