Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor Who Drifted on a Life Raft for Ten Days by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Book Description

Translated by Randolph Hogan. In 1955, Garcia Marquez was working for "El Espectador," a newspaper in Bogota, when in February of that year eight crew members of the Caldas, a Colombian destroyer, were washed overboard and disappeared. Ten days later one of them turned up, barely alive, on a deserted beach in northern Colombia. This book, which originally appeared as a series of newspaper articles, is Garcia Marquez's account of that sailor's ordeal."A luminous narrative that rivals the most remarkable stories of man's struggles against the sea."-- "Philadelphia Inquirer"
