  1. Thanks for sharing this article. I’d long heard about Gabriel Garcia Marquez but only this year, I finally took the opportunity to read his novel, one hundred years of solitude.

    His prose flows effortlessly. His characters sit beside you and linger after their passing. Time changes with the comings and goings of the generations of a family as day changes to night and night to day, with decay and rebirth.

    A Master is losing the threads of a life and vision shared with the world. But the Master and his work will always be with us.

  2. So sorry to hear this. He is a favorite of mine and so many. “Love in the Time of Cholera,” is up there with “Magic Mountain,” as two of my favorite books.
