Sons of sweethearts!
García Márquez is the recipient of a Fatwah-lite. His last novel, Memorias de Mis Putas Tristes has been banned in Iran. It has actually been on sale in Tehran's bookshops, but the culture ministry has decided that this was in fact a "bureaucratic error" which they have now chosen to rectify. In Farsi it had the slightly less racy title of Memories of My Melancholy Sweethearts.
