Gabriel Garcia Marquez Will ‘Publish No More Fiction’

Jaime García Márquez, brother of Gabriel García Márquez, said that the Nobel Prize-winning novelist is suffering from dementia.

Here’s more from The New York Times: “Jaime Abello, director of the Gabriel García Márquez New Journalism Foundation in Cartagena, said that the author had not been clinically diagnosed as having senile dementia but that his condition was open to interpretation. He said it has been understood for months that Mr. García Márquez would publish no more fiction.”

Jaime revealed that dementia runs in their family and doubted that the 85-year-old writer will be able to finish the second part of his 2002 autobiography, Living to Tell the Tale.

In October 2010, Random House Mondadori editor Cristobal Pera claimed that Márquez was writing on a not-yet-finished novel. Rumors have circulated for years that Márquez would never publish new work again. (Photo via Caleb Bach)
