Young Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Gabriel Garcia Marquez: "I don't know where I had acquired the habit of making unconscious sketches in the margins of newspapers on the napkins in restaurants, on the marble tables in cafes. But a casual acquaintance from El Molino, who had enough influence at a

[Colombian] ministry to be placed as a draftsman without having the slightest idea how to draw, proposed that I do his work for him and we divide the salary. Never again in my life was I so close to being corrupted, but not so close that I repented."
