Rest in peace, Gabriel Garcia Márquez.

I was so saddened to wake this morning to this news. There are writers whom you discover at the most important junctions of your life, who shape and illustrate your imagination just when you most needed nourishment, and for me — in my hungry teens and early twenties — Garcia Márquez was just such a figure.

He's with the immortals now. Or maybe always was.
