Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Tedarik Süresi: 24 Saatte Kargoda
'On February 22 we were told that we would be returning to Columbia.'
In 1955 eight crew members of Caldas, a Colombian destroyer, were swept overboard. Velasco alone survived, drifting on a raft for ten days without food or water. Marquez retells the survivor's amazing tale of endurance, from his loneliness and thirst to his determination to survive.
"The Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor" was Marquez's first major work, published in a Colombian newspaper, "El Espectador", in 1955 and then in book form in 1970.
