Gabriel García Márquez has been described as the greatest writer in Spanish since Cervantes, and El coronel no tiene quien le escriba is considered to be one of his best works. This reflective and atmospheric novel is set in a small Colombian town where the frustrated and stubborn Colonel, a veteran of the 'War of a Thousand Days', is still, after thirty years, waiting for the letter authorising payment of his war pension.

The old soldier and his wife mourn the brutal killing of their only son, and the story of their struggle against poverty and sickness culminates in the Colonel's defiant refusal to part with his cherished fighting cock, however serious the consequences.

The moving narrative pays tribute to the resilience of human nature and man's will to survive in the face of heavy odds. The novel also throws light on the turbulent religious and political troubles in Latin America.

Now revised to include an updated chronology and bibliography, Giovanni Pontiero's acclaimed critical edition provides English-speaking students with an introduction to, and notes on the text, and a selected vocabulary.

From the Publisher:

No One Writes to the Colonel is a masterpiece study of a lonely old man who was once powerful.

About the Author:

Gabriel García Márquez, nacido en Colombia, es una de las figuras más importantes e influyentes de la literatura universal. Ganador del Premio Nobel de Literatura en 1982, es además cuentista, ensayista, crítico cinematográfico, autor de guiones y, sobre todo, intelectual comprometido con los grandes problemas de nuestro tiempo, en primer término con los que afectan a su amada Colombia y a Hispanoamérica en general. Máxima figura del llamado “realismo mágico”, en el que historia e imaginación tejen el tapiz de una literatura viva, que respira por todos sus poros, es en definitiva el hacedor de uno de los mundos narrativos más densos de significados que ha dado la lengua española en el siglo XX. Entre sus obras más importantes figuran las novelas Cien años de soledad , El coronel no tiene quien le escriba, Crónica de una muerte anunciada, La mala hora, El general en su laberinto, y El amor en los tiempos del cólera, el libro de relatos Doce cuentos peregrinos y la primera parte de su autobiografía, Vivir para contarla.
