The Antonia Kerrigan Agency and its team announce with great sadness the passing of one of the world's most celebrated and beloved authors, Carlos Ruiz Zafón, after two and a half years of harsh disease, which he endured with irony and good temper to its invincible end.
We send our heartfelt sympathy to his widow MariCarmen Bellver.
Despite this painful loss to his family, friends, and all his readers and publishers across the globe, we know that his extraordinary body of work will live on. As will our memories of so many warm conversations with him in the agency's orchid garden, his uniquely droll sense of humor, and his generosity of spirit during these past twenty years of working together.
Rest in peace, Carlos. You will remain in our hearts always.
· Ruiz Zafón, Carlos
