"Gabriel García Márquez was a significant author of the 20th century in the Spanish language and the Latin American boom of magic realism. Born in Aracataca, Colombia, he was a novelist, short-story writer, screenwriter and journalist.

In 1982, he became the first Colombian to win the Nobel Prize in Literature. Among many other awards, he was also awarded the Neustadt International Prize for Literature in 1972.

Some of his phenomenal works include One Hundred Years of Solitude, The Autumn of the Patriarch, Chronicle of Death Foretold and Love in Times of Cholera."

- Leslie Reyes, Dallas College Spanish Professor on Gabriel García Márquez
