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.

“The story of a shipwrecked sailor” - Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
This book is just that. For the unimaginative mind, it’s just that. A sailor went overboard. He spends 10 days at sea, drifting on his raft. He floats into a beach and spends the life of a hero. Until fame gets disillusioned and he lives as if life goes through him uneventfully.
Everyday is described in painful first person narration and we sail with him, every inch of parched skin and every nibble of fish on his finger is felt.
A good after noon read. .

THE STORY OF A SHIPWRECKED SAILOR has been left somewhere in Goose Hallow... ABOUT THE BOOK: 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.

Riding out (well, coasting through's more like it) the 2nd nor'easter in 5 days with this Soylent Green DDH Double IPA from @sandcitybrewery. Label says it's brewed with "Galaxy, Enigma and...People." I love everything about this beer from nose to taste to finish. Then again, it's Sand City so No Surprises. And if this storm turned bad, anything coulda happened. #soylentgreenispeople #donnerparty #radiohead #eatingpeopleiseasy #respectnature #pachamama #ipagodfather #ipasnob #ipaslut #ipajunkie #properglassware #shitholepresident #fuckthenra #repealthe2ndamendment #yeahisaidit #edwingburrowsandmikewallace #gothamahistoryofnewyorkcityto1898 #markfrost #twinpeaksthefinaldossier #anthonydecurtis #loureedalife #orhanpamuk #theredhairedwoman #gabrielgarciamarquez #ofloveandotherdemons #inevilhour #thestoryofashipwreckedsailor

GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ. "The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor" (1986). First American Edition. INSCRIBED by the author on the title page: "Par Ted, / del amigo, / Gabriel '87." Ask@royalbooks.com #gabrielgarciamarquez #thestoryofashipwreckedsailor #signed

Today is Gabriel Garcia Marquez's birthday.
The acclaimed Colombian writer would have turned 91 on March 6, 2018.

__

I have read two of his books - The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor and Chronicle of a Death Foretold. And reading his work was a gratifying experience! Fast-paced pseudo-journalistic narrative featured in both the books and I believe in most of his writings.
__

While speaking about how his journalism career influenced his writing, Marquez stated to the Associated Press news agency, "I'm a journalist. I've always been a journalist. My books couldn't have been written if I weren't a journalist because all the material was taken from reality”.
__

Happy Birthday Gabriel Garcia Marquez!

Do you have any favourite books written by Marquez?

There's a nasty nor'easter battering us right now. Lotsa rain, a little snow, and very dangerous winds. Cracking this growler of Pow Pow Double IPA from @trillium was a very apt, and seriously delicious, choice because a tree came down out back and - Pow! - smacked into the rear of the house. Crap. #respectnature #pachamama #ipagodfather #ipasnob #ipaslut #ipajunkie #properglassware #shitholepresident #edwingburrowsandmikewallace #gothamahistoryofnewyorkcityto1898 #markfrost #twinpeaksthefinaldossier #anthonydecurtis #loureedalife #orhanpamuk #theredhairedwoman #gabrielgarciamarquez #ofloveandotherdemons #inevilhour #thestoryofashipwreckedsailor

“For hours I scrutinized the sea, a tranquil sea, immense and silent, but I didn’t see a single light other than the stars.” 🌊 •
