Blackstone Audio reports that Gabriel García Márquez, prominent Colombian writer, passed away in April at home in Mexico City. He was 87. Prior to his passing Marquez was long been considered one of the world’s greatest living authors writing masterfully about love, passion and human struggles.
William Kennedy, New York Times bestselling author, says of One Hundred Years of Solitude “The first piece of literature since the Book of Genesis that should be required reading for the entire human race.”
Newsweek says of Love in the Time of Cholera “A love story of astonishing power and delicious comedy…humane, richly comic, almost unbearably touching, and altogether extraordinary.”
The Los Angeles Times says of Memories of My Melancholy Whores “Masterful. Erotic. As hypnotizing as it is disturbing.”
