Gabriel Garcia Marquez Passes Away

Aged 87, the famed writer and Nobel-Prize winner Gabriel Garcia Maquez has passed from this world.

Writing primarily about the passions of his own ethnic background, Marquez published works depicting Latin-Americans. After accepting the Nobel prize for literature in 1982, Marquez said of his kin:

Source of insatiable creativity, full of sorrow and beauty, of which this roving and nostalgic Colombian is but one cipher more, singled out by fortune. Poets and beggars, musicians and prophets, warriors and scoundrels, all creatures of that unbridled reality, we have had to ask but little of imagination, for our crucial problem has been a lack of conventional means to render our lives believable.

[…]

His flamboyant and melancholy fictional works — among them “Chronicle of a Death Foretold,” ”Love in the Time of Cholera” and “Autumn of the Patriarch” — outsold everything published in Spanish except the Bible.

– Heffington Post.

Known as the most popular writer of magical realism – the mixing of the common and everyday with magical, imaginary and fantastic – Maquez, himself, was somewhat magical and today, truly, the world has lost a piece of that magic.
