Currently, I’m stalling from finishing my Parenthood review and liking everything Gabriel Garcia Marquez (I don’t think he and I were familiar enough for me to call him Gabo) that comes up in my dashboard. It breaks my heart to know there is a finite collection of works for me to catch up on, that I eventually will, and that I came to him so late.
I’m trying not to sound like one of those people who falls for an already-constructed hero when he saved me from nothing. I just like his stories. And we’re poorer for being without even the remote possibility another could come.
Who wants to start reading a Garcia Marquez novel/novella with me this weekend?
