The Postman: A Novel

W. W. Norton & Company, 2008 - 112 sidor
The unforgettable inspiration for the Academy Award–winning Il Postino, this classic novel established Antonio Skármeta's reputation as “one of the most representative authors of the post-boom generation in contemporary Latin American letters” (Christian Science Monitor). Boisterously funny and passionate, The Postman tells of young love ignited by the poetry of Pablo Neruda. Set in the colorful, ebullient years preceding the Pinochet dictatorship in Chile, the book has been translated into nearly twenty-five languages around the world.
