He's a Colombian treasure. I lived in Colombia from 1982 to 1989. Its was tough time for this wonderful country but he always brought a sense of pride. RIP

Besides writing a couple of my favorite novels, he also wrote some truly wonderful stories. One of my favorites is, "The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World." You can read it here: http://www.utdallas.edu/~aargyros/hansomest.htm
