Gabriel Garcia Marquez died Thursday , 87 old


Garcia Marquez was the  most popular writer in Spain since Miguel de Cervantes in the 17th century. He  became the best-known practitioner of “magical realism,” a blending of fantastic elements into portrayals of daily life. His well known works “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, “Chronicle of a Death Foretold,” ”Love in the Time of Cholera” and “The Autumn of the Patriarch” had secured him a prominent place in the world literature from all the times. He was at the same time an early practitioner of the literary nonfiction that would become known as New Journalism. In 1994, Garcia Marquez founded the Ibero-American Foundation for New Journalism. His book “News of a Kidnapping” vividly portrayed how cocaine traffickers led by Pablo Escobar had shred the social and moral of Colombia, kidnapping members of its elite. It’s not wrong to say that due to his major contribution to transpose reality in literature Gabriel Garcia Marquez became synonymous with Latin America itself.
