Márquez is best known for “One Hundred Years of Solitude,” which William Kennedy called “the first piece of literature since the Book of Genesis that should be required reading for the entire human race” (New York Times).
Salman Rushdie praised “A Farewell to Gabo and Mercedes”: “This is a beautiful farewell to two extraordinary people. It enthralled and moved me, and it will move and enthrall anyone who has ever entered the glorious literary world of Gabriel García Márquez.”
