El coronel no tiene quien le escribafue escrita por Gabriel Garciacute;a Maacute;rquez durante su estancia en Pariacute;s, adonde habiacute;a llegado como corresponsal de prensa y con la secreta intencioacute;n de estudiar cine, a mediados de los antilde;os cincuenta. El cierre del perioacute;dico para el que trabajaba le sumioacute; en la pobreza, mientras redactaba en tres versiones distintas esta excepcional novela, que fue rechazada por varios editores antes de su publicacioacute;n. Tras el barroquismo faulkneriano de La hojarasca, esta segunda novela supone un paso hacia la ascesis, hacia la economiacute;a expresiva, y el estilo del escritor se hace maacute;s puro y transparente. Se trata tambieacute;n de una historia de injusticia y violencia: un viejo coronel retirado va al puerto todos los viernes a esperar la llegada de la carta oficial que responda a la justa reclamacioacute;n de sus derechos por los servicios prestados a la patria. Pero la patria permanece muda.

Gabriel Garc�a M�rquez was born in Aracataca, Colombia on March 6, 1927. After studying law and journalism at the National University of Colombia in Bogota, he became a journalist. In 1965, he left journalism, to devote himself to writing. His works included Leaf Storm, No One Writes to the Colonel, The Evil Hour, One Hundred Years of Solitude, Love in the Time of Cholera, The Autumn of the Patriarch, Chronicle of a Death Foretold, The General in His Labyrinth, Clandestine in Chile, and the memoir Living to Tell the Tale. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982. He died on April 17, 2014 at the age of 87.
