Sad Today….

 

“Many years later as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendia was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice”

- the opening line of ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’

 

 

Words.

It was all about words stitched together by one extraordinary man.

Words that made the world laugh, dream, imagine, invent, argue, learn and love and think. And think how.

 

Gabriel Garcia Marquez – whose words transcended all boundaries of language and culture. Whose words drew comparisons to Mark Twain and Charles Dickens. Who was outsold only by the BIble!

Gabo, with your passing an era ends. And begins ‘years of solitude’ for the literary world.

It's always sad when one of our favourite authors dies....but their words live on for generations.
