“Before reaching the final line, however, he had already understood that he would never leave that room, for it was foreseen that the city of mirrors (or mirages) would be wiped out by the wind and exiled from the memory of men at the precise moment
when Aureliano Babilonia would finish deciphering the parchments, and that everything written on them was unrepeatable since time immemorial and forever more, because races condemned to one hundred years of solitude did not have a second opportunity on earth.”

RIP Gabo.

I played tennis on a court beside him in Havana. He had cancer at the time and really just stood on the baseline while his partner hit the ball straight to him. He couldn't run. Kind of sad.

"Chronicle of a Death Foretold" is the purest and most perfect novel I have ever read, short as it is.

I have always harboured a hope that his friendship with Fidel was really his way of getting as much personal insight as possible and he would posthumously publish what will be his greatest novel, about a mad dictator. I will soon know.
