Gabriel Garcia Marquez is in the Hospital

3459Colombian novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez has been admitted to a hospital in Mexico City. The One Hundred Years of Solitude is reportedly suffering from lung and urinary tract infections.

The Associated Press has the story: “The 87-year-old Nobel laureate entered the hospital Monday suffering from the infection and from dehydration, Mexico’s Secretary of Health said in a written statement. ‘The patient has responded to treatment. Once he’s completed his course of antibiotics his discharge from the hospital will be evaluated,’ the statement said.”

In 2012, the Nobel Literature Prize-winner was reportedly suffering from dementia. In October 2010, Random House Mondadori editor Cristobal Pera claimed that Márquez was writing on a not-yet-finished novel.
