On my home today, I hear the news. Author of Love in the Time of Cholera (among other books) Gabriel Garcia Marquez has passed away. According to Wikipedia, he passed away yesterday from pneumonia in Mexico City, Mexico. He was 87 years old and is (according to the President of Colombia) the “Greatest Colombian to ever live”.
The literary world has lost another great voice.
