A traves de esta trama tan original como seductora, el autor logra un intenso retrato de la convulsa decada de los setenta en Chile, asi como una cautivadora historia de amor y una poetica recreacion de la vida de Pablo Neruda. Esta novela, traducida a veinticinco idiomas, es ya un clasico de las letras universales, y la pelicula basada en ella fue nominada a cinco Oscar.


ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

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.
