Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez returned for the first time in a quarter of a century to the banana-growing birthplace that inspired his classics of Latin American literature. Hounded by autograph-seeking fans and photographers, Garcia Marquez traveled to Aracataca by train Wednesday, part of a new passenger service Colombians hope will carry legions of literary pilgrims. The celebrity author lives in Mexico City and last visited his hometown in 1983, a year after winning the Nobel Prize for literature.
