The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor. Translated by Randolph Hogan.
by Garcia Marquez.

Publisher Information:
Knopf, New York: 1986.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. Review copy with publisher's promotional card laid-in. This true-life story of a sailor washed overboard, tells of his ten day survival on a raft after four of his fellow shipmates drown and he is threatened by sharks, sufferes from the hot sun, and is unable to get the attention of rescue planes. Garcia Marquez originally wrote this story of survival at sea as a series of newspaper articles and is here presented in a more elaborate, fully realized account in book form.
