Summary
  • "Mario Jiménez, un joven pescador, decide abandonar su oficio para convertirse en cartero de Isla Negra, donde la única persona que recibe y envía correspondencia es el poeta Pablo Neruda. Jiménez admira a Neruda y espera pacientemente que algún día el poeta le dedique un libro, o que se produzca algo más que un brevísimo cruce de palabras y el pago de la propina. Su anhelo se verá finalmente recompensado y entre ambos se entablará una relación muy peculiar. Sin embargo, la enrarecida atmósfera que se vive en el Chile de aquellos años precipitará un dramático desenlace."--Page 4 of cover
  • Mario Jiménez, a young fisherman, decides to abandon his position to become the postman for Isla Negra, where the only person who sends and receives correspondence is the poet Pablo Neruda. Jimenez admires Neruda and patiently waits for that one day when the poet will dedicate a book to Mario, or produce something more than a brief crossword or the gas bill. Jimenez will eventually see his desire fulfilled and a peculiar relationship will be struck up between the two men. However, the strained, tense atmosphere that covers Chile during those years will precipitate a dramatic conclusion to their time together
