Memories of My Melancholy Whores

By Gabriel Garcia Marquez
A "New York Times" Notable Book
On the eve of his ninetieth birthday a bachelor decides to give himself a wild night of love with a virgin. As is his habit he has purchased hundreds of women he asks a madam for her assistance. The fourteen-year-old girl who is procured for him is enchanting, but exhausted as she is from caring for siblings and her job sewing buttons, she can do little but sleep. Yet with this sleeping beauty at his side, it is he who awakens to a romance he has never known.
Tender, knowing, and slyly comic, "Memories of My Melancholy Whores" is an exquisite addition to the master s work."
