For this week’s sabiduría, or words of wisdom, we celebrate the work, legacy, and life of Gabriel García Márquez, who emerged from a Mexico City hospital earlier this week in delicate health. García Márquez is not only a Nobel-prize winning author and creator of a whole literary genre, but a former journalist. For those who want to learn to write, he is also a valuable teacher. ¡Fuerza, Gabo!
