"I read One Hundred Years of Solitude when it came out in 1968, and it was amazing. It's the most magical book I have ever read. The first time I met [Gabriel García Márquez] was through the pages of his fantastic book. Later, I met him in person and I thought he was brilliant, charming and very witty. I think he has influenced the world."
