When Gabriel Garcia Marquez completed One Hundred Years of Solitude in 1966, his wife had to pawn her hair dryer and their electric heater to pay for the postage to mail the finished manuscript which was then published at eight thousand copies. The book has since sold over 30 million copies and can be read in more than thirty languages.
