A Farewell to Gabo and Mercedes

In March 2014, Gabriel Garcรญa Mรกrquez, 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 โ€œGabo,โ€ 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 motherโ€™s words, Rodrigo wondered, โ€œIs this how the end begins?โ€ To make sense of events as they unfolded, he began to write the story of Garcรญa Mรกrquezโ€™s final days. The result is this intimate and honest account that not only contemplates his fatherโ€™s mortality but reveals his remarkable humanity.

A beautiful homage to an extraordinary human and his wife. In this short memoir of love and loss, Rodrigo documents the last days of his father written in such an intimate way that you can relate and feel all his emotions. A unique and enthralling memoir.
