The Independent reveals likely cause of 31-year feud between literary giants (in its excitement misspelling “feud”). At a Mexican movie premiere in 1976, Mario Vargas Llosa walked up to his (up until then) good friend Gabriel Garcia Marquez and punched him in the eye. They haven’t spoken since. Of course it’s about a woman, a biographer says. When the great men patch up their quarrel and renew their friendship I suggest they have two of their grandchildren marry each other. This would produce the formidable hyphenation: Vargas Llosa-Garcia Marquez.
