"A jewel of a story."—The New Yorker
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.
A tender book about a simple man and what he learns about poetry, love, politics and life from his friend Pablo Neruda.
