Colombian novelist and Nobel Laureate Gabriel José de la Concordia García Márquez, or “Gabo”, died today at 87 in his Mexico City home.

The New York Times recalls:

In accepting his Nobel, Mr. García Márquez said: “Poets and beggars, musicians and prophets, warriors and scoundrels, all creatures of that unbridled reality, we have had to ask but little of imagination. For our crucial problem has been a lack of conventional means to render our lives believable.”
