Book Description: Alfred Knopf, 2005. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Gabriel García Márquez first work of fiction in ten years, written at the height of his powers, the Spanish edition of which Ilan Stavans called, ?Masterful. Erotic. As hypnotizing as it is disturbing? (Los Angeles Times). On the eve of his ninetieth birthday, our unnamed protagonist?an undistinguished journalist and lifelong bachelor?decides to give himself ?the gift of a night of wild love with an adolescent virgin.? The virgin, whom an old madam procures for him, is splendidly young, with the silent power of a sleeping beauty. The night of love blossoms into a transforming year. It is a year in which he relives, in a rush of memories, his lifetime of (paid-for) sexual adventures and experiences a revelation that brings him to the edge of dying?not of old age, but, at long last, of uncorrupted love. Memories of My Melancholy Whores is a brilliant gem by the master storyteller. Garcia Marquez's slim, reflective contribution to the romance of the brothel, his first book-length fiction in a decade, is narrated by perhaps the greatest connoisseur ever of girls for hire. After a lifetime spent in the arms of prostitutes (514 when he loses count at age 50), the unnamed journalist protagonist decides that his gift to himself on his 90th birthday will be a night with an adolescent virgin. But age, followed by the unexpected blossoming of love, disrupts his plans, and he finds himself wooing the allotted 14-year-old in silence for a year, sitting beside her as she sleeps and contemplating a life idly spent. Flashes of GarcIa Murquez's brilliant imagery-the sleeping girl is "drenched in phosphorescent perspiration"-illuminate the novella, and there are striking insights into the euphoria that is the flip side of the fear of death. The narrator's wit and charm, however, are not enough to counterbalance the monotony of his aimlessness. Though enough grace notes are struck to produce echoes of eloquence, this flatness keeps the memories as melancholy as the women themselves. Elizabeth's Bookshops have been one of Australia's premier independent book dealers since 1973. Elizabeth's family-owned business operates seven branches in Perth CBD, Fremantle, Subiaco (WA), Sydney CBD and Newtown (NSW). All orders are dispatched within 24 hours from our Fremantle Warehouse.
