Literary giant Gabriel García Márquez hospitalized

Baku. Javid Zeynalov – APA. Gabriel García Márquez, widely regarded as one of the most important contemporary Latin American authors, was admitted to a hospital in Mexico earlier this week, according to the Ministry of Health, APA report quoting CNN.

The Nobel Prize recipient, known as "Gabo," had infections in his lungs and his urinary tract. He was suffering from dehydration, the ministry said.

 

García Márquez, 87, is responding well to antibiotics, but his release date is still to be determined.

 

He won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1982 "for his novels and short stories, in which the fantastic and the realistic are combined in a richly composed world of imagination, reflecting a continent's life and conflicts.” His “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, “Autumn of the Patriarch” and other novels have been translated into many languages, including Azerbaijani.
