Latin American author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1982, died Thursday. He was 87. Garcia Marquez, the master of a style known as magic realism, was and remains Latin America’s best-known writer.
His novels were filled with miraculous and enchanting events and characters; love and madness; wars, politics, dreams and death. And everything he had written, Garcia Marquez once said, he knew or heard before he was 8 years old.
Chilean novelist Ariel Dorfman says Marquez’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech was one of the author’s most important messages to the world.
"Garcia Marquez is speaking about all the people who are marginal to history, who have not had a voice," Dorfman says. "He gives a voice to all those who died. He gives a voice to all those who are not born yet. He gives a voice to Latin America."

A little reminder to myself to finish reading Colson Whitehead’s new book, so I can pick an excerpt for next week’s First Read — yeeeeeeaah! And not only will we have an exclusive pre-publication taste of poker, beef jerky and death (well, hopefully not death, but I’m definitely down with beef jerky), I’ll also be doing a Twitter chat with Whitehead on Tuesday morning over at @nprbooks — stay tuned for details!
And in the meantime, check out our coverage of his previous books here.

In need of a Monday pick-me-up? Take 10 minutes and watch Rachel Fershleiser’s TEDx talk, “Why I heart the Bookternet" and I guarantee you’ll be full of optimism and sunshine. 

1. That dress, those tights.

2. How can I achieve this level of public speaking excellence? 

I love this woman.
