Memories of My Melancholy Whores is a powerful novel about a man who so far has never felt love from Nobel Laureate Gabriel Garca Mrquez, author of the One Hundred Years of Solitude. 'The year I turned ninety, I wanted to give myself the gift of a night of wild love with an adolescent virgin' On the eve of his ninetieth birthday a newspaper columnist in Colombia decides to give himself 'a night of mad love with a virgin adolescent'. But on seeing this beautiful girl he falls deeply under her spell. His love for his 'Delgadina' causes him to recall all the women he has paid to perform acts of love. And so the columnist realises he must chronicle the life of his heart, to offer it freely to the world. . . 'Mrquez describes this amorous, sometimes disturbing journey with the grace and vigour of a master storyteller' Daily Mail 'Mrquez is wonderful on the transformative and redemptive powers of love. . . storytelling magic' Tatler 'Mrquez writes in this lyrical, magical language that no-one else can do' Salman Rushie
