The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (1970)
Published by Penguin, 1996
i read this book after my two month break at home, when I returned back to hell house, exactly two years ago. read a Tolstoy book before, and then moved on to this. The apartment was silent then, at least for a few days when I was reading both these books. But as soon as I finished this one, the mayhem had started again. It was like the house was waiting for me to finish the book, feeling sorry for me, pitying me. oh well. the book is actually ghostwritten by garcia, it was supposed to be this interview kind of book. have always liked me some sea adventures and this was a fun entertaining read. sea adventures are a nice escapism tool. takes you out in the middle of nowhere, fish and water all around, isolation.
