The famous writer Isabel Chacón is 80 years old today. The newly-awarded winner of the Planeta Prize, who was unable to receive it in person because of her agoraphobia, today celebrates her birthday with no public or family event to mark the occasion, as has been her custom in recent years.

This same night a fire breaks out and all the tenants are forced to evacuate the building.
