Considered one of the most significant authors of the 20th century, famed Colombian journalist, novelist, short story writer and screenwriter Gabriel Garcia Marquez has passed away at the age of 87 in his Mexico City home.
Best known for his novels including “One Hundred Years of Solitude,” “Autumn of the Patriarch” and “Love in the Time of Cholera,” his work introduced his readers to magical realism - the combination of facts and fantasy.
The Colombian who received the Nobel Prize In Literature was hospitalized on March 31 after suffering from a lung and urinary tract infection. Márquez responded positively to the treatment. On Tuesday, April 8, he was released from the National Medical Sciences and Nutrition Institute in Mexico City. A little over a week later, the health of the writer, known as “Gabo,” failed him once and for all.
Márquez is survived by his wife Mercedes Bercha and his two sons, Rodrigo and Gonzalo.
