The Nobel Prize-winning writer of “One Hundred Years of Solitude” said last year he was grappling with a new novel.

Here’s more from the story: “when the author answered the phone call from El Tiempo, he said: ‘Call me later. I’m busy writing.’ With the typical grumpiness which he has been known to treat reporters in recent years, Garcia Marquez finally agreed to answer two questions from the newspaper.” (Via MobyLives)
