“Considering the fact that this Colombian guy was in New York opening a Cuban press agency, it would be unusual if he was not spied upon”- Rodrigo Garcia, son of Garcia Marquez

President Obama said at the time of his passing, that Garcia Marquez was  “a representative and voice for the people of the Americas,” adding that “the  world has lost one of its greatest visionary writers — and one of my favorites from the time I was young.”

President Bill Clinton, who like Obama and Castro, also befriended Garcia Marquez said that he “was honored to be his friend and to know his great heart and brilliant mind for more than 20 years.”
