If you are a fan of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, then you probably already heard of his passing last Thursday. I wish I could say that I’ve read his books, but I haven’t. It’s still not too late for me to read his work though. My library has One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera (and the DVD), but we also have Living to Tell the Tale and Memories of my Melancholy Whores. So perhaps that last title doesn’t sound so sweet, but it’s 115 pages. I love a short novel, just saying.
Check out this video from the New York Times which does a way better job of eulogizing the impact he had on the literary world.
