Colombian novelist and Nobel prize winner Gabriel García Márquez denies
earlier reports that he would never publish a book again. “I do nothing
but write,” he assured newspaper El Tiempo.
According to the newspaper, the Colombian writer’s answers were short and simple.
El Tiempo: Could you answer a few answers for El Tiempo?
Márquez: Call me later, I am writing
The newspaper called the newspaper in his Mexico City studio again later that day. The writer allowed the newspaper only two questions.
El Tiempo: Is it true you will not write again?
Márquez: It is not just not true, the truth is I don’t do anything but write
El Tiempo: But it has been said that you will not publish more books
Márquez: My job isn’t publishing, it’s writing. I will know when the cakes I am baking are ready to be eaten.
Both Márquez’ biografist and his publisher had said earlier this week the writer would not be publishing again.
