Many Moments

Kind of joining Amanda today, by using a photo in remembrance of Gabriel García Márquez, who died yesterday at age 87.  García Márquez had tremendous influence on my turn to Latin American studies, and One Hundred Years of Solitude is my vote for the best novel of the twentieth century.  It is a really good book the first time you read it, amazing the second, and the greatest book you've ever read by the third few books are like that.  

Maybe I need to read it again, in the original Spanish, this summer.
