New hmli Unas style
By Chris McCubbin
The fiction of Gabriel Garcia
Marquez epitomizes everything
worthwhile in 20th-century litera
ture. Garcia Marquez, a Columbian,
writes stories in which reality and
fantasy mix delicately and intri
cately and turn out to be the same
thing. Garcia Marquez's works are,
on the surface, a model of prose
clarity and economical use of lan-
guage. But behind this are levels of
beauty and meaning that extend
ever deeper to infinity.
Garcia Marquez's gift is the ability
to perceive and communicate the
religious, psychological, ethical,
metaphysical, sociological and pol
itical ramifications of such acts as
adding a room to a house or emptying
a chamber pot, without appearing
to be saying any more than that a
room was built or a chamber pot
emptied. His classic novel, "One
Hundred Years of Solitude," may be
the single best work of fiction
produced this century.
Garcia Marquez's new novel, "The
Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor," is
neither new nor a novel. In February
1955 eight sailors were washed from
the deck of a Colombian naval
vessel and presumed lost. Ten days
later one of the sailors, named Luis
Alejandro Velasco, washed up, alive
and conscious, on the Colombian
shore. The full title of his story is
"The Story Of A Shipwrecked Sailor
who drifted on a life raft for ten days
without food or water, was pro
claimed a national hero, kissed by
beauty queens, made rich through
publicity, and then spurned by the
government and forgotten for all
At this time Garcia Marquez was
a reporter with a left-wing Colom
bian newspaper, "El Espectadore."
He interviewed Velasco, and these
are the transcripts of those inter
views. In his forward to the book
Garcia Marquez says that every word
of the book is Velasco's and that he
merely wrote down what he was
"Shipwrecked Sailor" is a great
adventure story. And no doubt
original readers were amazed to
learn of the negligence aboard the
destroyer Caldras that led to the
deaths of three crewmembers and of
the coverup afterward.
"I lay there for about ten minutes.
Little by little I was regaining my
strength. It was after six in the
morning and the sun shone brightly.
Among the coconut shells along the
side of the road were some whole
coconuts. I crawled toward them,
propped myself up on a tree trunk,
and pressed one of the smooth,
impenetrable fruits between my
knees. Anxiously I inspected it for
soft spots, as I had done with the
first five days before. With each turn
I could feel the milk splash inside.
The deep, guttural sound reawakened
my thirst. My stomach ached, the
wound on my knee was bleeding,
and my fingers, raw at the tips,
throbbed with a slow, deep pain.
During the ten days at sea there had
never been a moment when I felt I
would go crazy, but I though I would
that morning as I turned the coconut
round and round, trying to find a
place to open it and listening to the
clean, fresh, inaccessible milk spash
