The Nobel prizewinning author Gabriel García Márquez is suffering from senile dementia and can no longer write, his brother has revealed.
Jaime García Márquez told students in Cartagena, Colombia, that his older brother, affectionately know as Gabo, calls him on the telephone to ask basic questions.
“He has problems with his memory. Sometimes I cry because I feel like I’m losing him,” he said. (via Gabriel García Márquez’s writing career ended by dementia | Books | The Observer)
