Farewell To Gabo And Mercedes  A

Farewell To Gabo And Mercedes A

The son of one of the greatest writers of our time - Nobel Prize
winner and internationally bestselling icon Gabriel Garc?a
M?rquez remembers his beloved father and mother in this tender
memoir about love and loss. In March 2014, Gabriel Garc?a
M?rquez, one of the most acclaimed writers of the twentieth
century, came down with a cold. The woman who had been beside
him for more than fifty years, his wife Mercedes Barcha, was not
hopeful - her husband, affectionately known as "Gabo," was then
nearly 87 and battling dementia. I don't think we'll get out of
this one,she told their son Rodrigo. Hearing his mother's words,
Rodrigo wondered, "Is this how the end begins" To make sense of
events of as they unfolded, he began to write the story of
Garc?a M?rquez's final days. The result is this intimate and
honest account that not only contemplates his father's mortality
but reveals his remarkable humanity.
