Adios, Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Calling Gabriel Garcia Marquez one of the all-time best Spanish language writers is as silly as calling Babe Ruth one of the all-time best English language baseball players. Love in the Time of Cholera is the greatest love story ever told by one of the greatest story tellers ever.

Garcia Marquez’s work will enrich our world as long as there are readers. Muchas gracias, senor.
