But I also realized that the contrary was true as well: I would not have traded the delights of my suffering for anything in the world.

Memories of my melancholy whores

“Ten years after his last novel (Of Love and Other Demons) Gabriel García Márquez, winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize for Literature, returns with Memories of My Melancholy Whores, the story begins when a ninety year old journalist, that went with a woman he didn't pay for, decides to celebrate his anniversary spending a night with a young virgin.

This night turns into a year of a contemplation of the 14-year-old girl sleeping, and the memories of brothel adventures and a boring life of a local paper journalist.

Inspired in Yasunari Kawabata's House of the Sleeping Beauties, García Márquez builds a novel about a man who chooses lust to prove himself that he is alive and ends up with an unexpected and surprising love story.” read more
