The truth behind the feud

<p>A photographer friend of Gabriel Garc&iacute;a Marquez, the Nobel prize-winning author, has shed light on what the Times describes as &quot;most famous literary feud of modern times&quot;, with fellow author Mario Vargas Llosa.</p><p>&quot;Once great friends, the two writers have steadfastly refused to talk about the reasons behind their spectacular bust-up, and so have their wives. Now two pictures have appeared in which a youthful Garc&iacute;a M&aacute;rquez shows off a black eye, and the photographer who took them has shed light on the origins of the feud. Not surprisingly, perhaps, it involves a woman.&quot;<br /><br /></p>
