2674 : Whats 29000 cigarettes worth?

From the article in NyTimes....comes this gem by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

“The best writers are the ones who tend to write less and smoke more,” Márquez wrote, “and so it’s normal that they need at least two years and 29,000 cigarettes to write a book of 200 pages. What that means in good arithmetic is that just on what they smoke they spend more than what they’ll earn from the book.”
