Translated by Thea Gvasalia


In the introduction the author says that the book was published in 1955 as a series of fourteen installments in a newspaper. Initially, the authorities glorified the surviving sailor, but the true story discredited the official account of the event. The publication was discontinued though the newspaper doubled the number of its readers. As a result, Marquez published his piece of non-fiction only in 1970.
