On this date in 1982, Gabriel Garcia Marquez from Colombia won the Nobel Peace Prize for Literature "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 most prominent and important works are “One Hundred Years of Solitude” and “Love in the Time of Cholera.” It has been reported that only the Bible has sold more copies in the Spanish language than the works of García Márquez, who was affectionately known at "Gabo" throughout Latin America.
