Memories of My Melancholy Whores


“I would not have traded the delights of my suffering for anything in the world.”

“Sex is the consolation you have when you can’t have love”

“Morality, too, is a question of time.”

“The truth is I’m getting old, I said. We already are old, she said with a sigh. What happens is that you don’t feel it on the inside, but from the outside everybody can see it.” Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

It’s a book about an old man still harboring dreams of love and pleasure.  Both negative & positive criticism brought with its story.  Maybe because the main plot involves a 90 year old falling in love with a 14 year old virgin whore. Some says  it maintains its charm and  was a creepy entanglement.

Sorry but I don’t get it.
