THE STORY OF A SHIPWRECKED SAILOR

Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

New York: Knopf, 1986. F/VG+; 106 pages; First edition stated; Fine in navy cloth titled and decorated in light blue gilt, in a Very Good+ unclipped dustjacket, short closed tear at the top corner of the back fold, one teeny dot on the front, minor edgewear at the top of the spine. Translated from the Spanish by Randolph Hogan. Subtitled "... who drifted on a life raft for ten days without food or water, was rescued and proclaimed a national hero, kissed by beauty queens, made rich by publicity, and then spurned by the government and forgotten for all time." A series of newpaper articles ghostwritten by the author in 1955, the narrative revealed (from the New York Times) "the corruption and inefficiency of the Colombian Navy. No lifesaving equipment was stored on the life raft, and the destroyer had only listed in the heavy seas because contraband refrigerators and washing machines had been stacked on its decks. The Government of Rojas Pinilla was incensed at this smear against the navy and took its revenge. El Espectador [the newspaper that ran the articles] was closed. Mr. Velasco was forced to leave the navy and 'disappeared into the oblivion of everyday life.' Mr. Garcia Marquez fled to France and began his 'nomadic and somewhat nostalgic exile that in certain ways also resembles a drifting raft.' " Great jacket illustration by Douglas Fraser.. First Edition. Hard Cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
