Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez Has Died at 87

+

The Colombian Nobel laureate Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, who was not only one of the greatest authors in the Spanish language, but throughout the world, has died at the age of 87. Márquez was the author of such beloved and critically-adored novels as One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera, one of my favorite lines from which seems appropriate:

“He allowed himself to be swayed by his conviction that human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.”
