End of an Era
Thanks to the Hayden's Ferry Review blog for this news article. Gabriel Garcia Marquez is unlikely to write any new work. Garcia Marquez is one of my top 5 novelists, and I wonder what it must be like to have lived a life long enough and full enough to be satisfied and stop writing. I cannot wrap my mind around it, but I certainly respect the decision. I may re-read One Hundred Years of Solitude as my first book of the summer.
On another summery note: three days until Opening Day for the Cubs!
