About This Book
"In my ninetieth year, I decided to give myself the gift of a
night of love with a young virgin."
An elderly journalist decides to celebrate his 90 years in a grand way, giving himself a present that will make him feel like he’s still alive: a virgin. In the brothel of a picturesque town, he sees the young woman from the back, completely naked, and his life changes radically. Now that he meets her he finds himself close to dying, not of old age, but rather of love.
"Memories of My Melancholy Whores (original title: Memoria de mis putas tristes)" is the story of this eccentric, solitary old man, a narrative of his sexual adventures (of which there were many), for which he always paid, never imagining that this would be the way he would discover true love.
This new novel, written in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's incomparable style movingly, contemplates the misfortunes of old age and celebrates the joys of being in love.
