An interesting photo of Nobel winnign Colombian writer Gabriel García Márquez sporting a black eye, supposedly from an altercation with Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa.

You may have to register to see the photo and the article, but registration is free and will give you access to most of the NY Times articles. I'm a big fan of García Márquez' writing, and have often used his short story "A very old man with enormous wings" in my class Evolution in Biololgy and Literature.

Thanks for the link, Bob. I remember seeing that picture and reading about the incident with Vargas Llosa some 30 years ago. Both of them were world famous already and it was quite a story.
I read "One hundred years of solitude" in 1973 for the first time, and have re-read it about 10 times since. It has lost none of its magic.
