Marquez's Shiner

That much thought goes into author photographs is undisputed. And, judging by book flaps, the tweedy, scholarly and thoughtful poses on armchairs in front of bookshelves -- pipe optional -- have given way to more informal, accessible postures, often with windblown hair. Now, however, Gabriel Garcia Marquez may have heralded the start of a new trend: that of The Author Posing With A Black Eye.


  • I shall Write a Book.

    For the sole purpose of being Photographed With a Pipe.
    A black eye might spoil the effect.
