Gabriel Garcia Marquez in The Paris Review, 1981:
After The Evil Hour I did not write anything for five years. I had an idea of what I always wanted to do, but there was something missing and I was not sure what it was until one day I discovered the right tone—the tone that I eventually used in One Hundred Years of Solitude. It was based on the way my grandmother used to tell her stories. She told things that sounded supernatural and fantastic, but she told them with complete naturalness. When I finally discovered the tone I had to use, I sat down for eighteen months and worked every day.
What a terrific interview.

The Control Room
Rory: Yahhhhhhhhhh! Owie! Owie!
Me: What happened?
Rory: Elliot hit me!
Me: Elliot, get in your room!
(Elliot dragged to room)
Elliot: But I didn’t hit him!
Me (to Rory): So Elliot hit you?
Me: Where did he hit you?
(Rory waves hands in front of face)
Me: Did he punch you?
Me: Did he kick you?
Me: Did he throw rocks at you?
Me: Uh-huh. Rory, get in your room.
Once I helped make a print of one of my favorite bands for one of my favorite photographers. Then this happened. #tbt
