My favorite Colombian

18 April 2014

This is my all-time favorite photo of Gabriel Garcia Marquez.  He’d just been punched out by Mario Vargas-Llosa at a literary do at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City (I’m across the street from the Palacio right now).  Rodrigo Moya, the photographer, was the 16 year old son of one of Garcia Marquez’ friends when he took this photo in Februrary 1976.
