Gabriel García Márquez
Señor Márquez, Requiescat in Pace. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-27073911
A good cure for thinking the United States, capitalism, and magical realism are correctly called American is our fine, current Latin American literature. Garcia Marquez' masterwork should be a fixture in every library -- at home and for the public -- in North and South America. Truly a masterpiece and object lesson for nortes'. Verdaderamente instructivo.
