Gabriel García Márquez dies at 87

“What matters in life is not what happens to you but what you remember and how you remember it.” – Gabriel García Márquez

Love in the Time of Cholera

Love in the Time of Cholera

 

Gabriel García Márquez

Gabriel García Márquez

Nobel Laureate and brilliant author Gabriel García Márquez died yesterday. The Colombian-born writer was a master of magical realism, a genre in which the impossible and the realistic are intertwined. About this writing style, he wrote, “I say extraordinary things in an ordinary tone. It’s possible to get away with ANYTHING as long as you make it believable.” His books were translated into dozens of languages and were developed into dozens of television and movie adaptations.

Gabo, as he was affectionately nicknamed, changed my world several times. I remember quite clearly sitting in the shade in Houston, Texas, in June 1997, reading “Love in the Time of Cholera.” I was so engrossed, I didn’t mind the sweltering humidity. There are very few books that stay with you in this way, such that you remember the thread of your life that they accompanied as you read them. His books were that for me.

Read more here.
