One Hundred Years of Solitude
A los idiotas nunca les gusta Hemingway, por Juan Gabriel Vásquez Como quizás lo sabrán ustedes, el pasado 2 de julio se cumplieron 50 años del día en que Hemingway bajó al sótano de su casa, agarró una escopeta Boss de dos cañones y una caja de balas, volvió al salón, cargó la escopeta y apoyó la culata en el suelo y luego apoyó la frente en los cañones.
