    I just saw this on the news and I was in complete shock. It was reported that he was sick and he had gotten worse.

    :(

    He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1998. RIP, José Saramago.

    A great talent and a huge loss to be sure but he left us quite a wonderful literary legacy. R.I.P.
