Writers Laughing: Gabriel García Márquez

Another big smiler – like Alice Munro, there are a million pictures of him smiling. And smiling broadly, with his eyes crinkly and his mouth slightly open. But laughing? You just know he had to laugh all the time – but whether those were captured in the pre-cell phone era is another question.

I found a few where he and Fidel are laughing, which I decided not to use. Instead, I’ll go with this one:

And then this one, which I love (“writers laughing with small children” is a good sub-category):

Staged for a photographer? Possibly. Do I care? Not at all!

  1. Incredible writer ……… I remember what Gabriel Garcia Marquez once said: ” A story is the perception of the writers of the world and in return the readers take their perception of the story, therefore it’s an interaction of the writers and readers of the reality. The story creates the world we perceived, reality is a reflection”

    I tried to write a blog about him, see whether you like it: https://stenote.blogspot.com/2014/09/an-interview-with-gabriel.html
