    He created the character Francisco the Man in his beautifully weird novel "One Hundred Years of Solitude".

    He is a literary legend and the world is a brighter place for having his immortal art.

    He may have died but the magic realism he popularized hasn't. RIP

    13" is too big. 11" is just right.
