¡Feliz cumpleaños a Gabriel García Márquez!
Well, belated birthday wishes, since his 80th birthday was yesterday.
And (woo hoo!) he’s working on the follow up to Vivir Para Contarla. Courtesy of the LA Times via Galley Cat. Happy news, especially since I didn’t know that he had given up writing and was looking forward to the next volume of his memoirs!
And Mike Newell & Javier Bardem just finished filming Love in the Time of Cholera. Bardem is playing Florentino Ariza, with Benjamin Bratt as Dr. Juvenal Urbino and Giovanna Mezzogiorno as Fermina Daza. I’ll be looking forward to seeing this over the Thx holiday.
