    To enjoy this book you have to enter the mind and world of this old old man living the last years of his life in poverty in the once grand decaying house of his youth His career never rose above second rate reporter he never married and never even fell in love His personal relationships with women were limited to the whores he paid for A most unfulfilled lifeBut then for a present for his 90th birthday he gives himself a 14 year old virgin a would be whore Exhausted from menial labour and drugged up with valerian by the brothel madame she sleeps every night they spend together her sleeping and he sitting on a chair next to her bed and for the first time in his life he falls in love In love with the idea of his sleeping beautyThis is a poetic sensual book that many reviewers unable to see beyond their own ideas of fitness have condemned as tawdry a paean to pedophilia and just plain sick But it isn't It's the last flowering of a rose; touched by frost it should have died but instead is glorious beautiful because it is so unseasonal a real surprise What it says about the nature of men's love for young beauty is age old look good be uiet and demure and let him be the dominant one is taken to an extreme here It worked for Snow White it worked for the Sleeping Beauty and it works for Delgadina tooLove changes everything Despite his 90 years the old old man walks with a spring in his step his head held high and smiling to the world He has an epiphany 'sex is the consolation one has for not finding enough love' and writes about love in his weekly columns in the local newspaper This brings him the fame respect and friendship he had craved all his life In his 91st year at last he has found fulfillmentUltimately Gabriel Garcia Maruez says through this book Never Give Up Read May 1 2009Update I've been reading other reviews and it seems that people think this book is about paedophilia some Lolita book Nothing could be further from the truth The whores and loveless sex without dreams or commitment didn't bring the old man happiness Now not having sex but just sitting beside a sleeping girl and dreaming and falling in love with the dream has brought about a sea change Pure love and romantic daydreams have made him happy and this happiness has seeped into every aspect of his lire until despite his years he walks with a spring in his step and a smile on his face and this happiness makes him a hero to all who see him This is a brilliant book It is the last book the final jewel inset into the crown that is the literature of GGM Do not hold back because of what you've heard Do not misinterpret and see what isn't there This book is the musings of a life without much happiness not sex and the girl is no molested than was Snow White resting in her glass case with only her beauty on showI wrote this update purely because both on GR and in my shop people have heard about this book and so don't think they want to read it December 4th 2016

    This is it everyone The most depressing book I have read Ever Yes This book Not the ones about the holocaust brutal wars awful diseases this book About an old man who has only ever slept with whores I don't know why it got to me like it did but I would read a few pages and feel physically sick to my stomach It's not the subject matter it's interesting it's not the writing he's Maruez it's just this sense of awfulness This awful awful life he's lead and what he has never known What his little vulgar life consists ofMaybe Maruez is just too on his game here He's just too good at creating this sense of emptiness and this wasteland of a life That isn't really all that tragic It's just so unutterably sad I can't describe it I don't know what to rate it I never finished it And I haven't been brave enough to pick it up again since

    255After getting the cringing fingernails down a chalkboard type feeling of a ninety year old man with a boner eradicated from my mind I thought to myself right now that's out the way this IS García Máruez we are talking about here I am in safe hands don't worry this will turn out to be a decent read Or at least that's what I'd hoped This novella is narrated by an aging connoisseur of girls for hire After spending a lifetime getting it on with prostitutes 514 of them to be precise before losing count the unnamed journalist fancies a nice young virgin for his 90th birthday On the first of many occasions he enters a room to discover the chosen girl of 14 naked and asleep Over time he obsesses about her; writes columns that drive his readers into a frenzy; kisses her everywhere and reads to her as she sleeps But never consummates the relationship sexually or sees her awake The whole scenario of such an elderly man wanted to bed someone so young just put me off but this wasn't the biggest of it's problems Simply put I found it dull and lazy The narrator's wit and charm were not enough to counterbalance the monotony of his aimlessness and sadly as a result I never at any moment felt anything for anyone involved It could have worked out better if I tried to look at things from the perspective of the protagonist but I chose not to I didn't want to be in his mind his pants or in his bedFrustratingly though there were flashes of Máruez's brilliance but this was reduced to the occasional passage of writing here and there even the striking insights into the euphoria that is the flip side to the fear of death couldn't save it from the grave No wonder the whores were melancholic they were probably also fed up I don't blame them Was expecting so much this felt like Gabriel's bad day at the office but I guess we do all have them

    On a certain level I truly enjoyed Memories of My Melancholy Whores I am always ready to be swept up in the simple whimsy of GGM's language and the sweeping romance and dramatic emotion of his work always appeals to me But on another very real level I found this book disturbing and sexistThe book's theme is strikingly reminiscent of Talk to Her a recent Almodovar film Both deal with men who build flowery romanticerotic relationships in their minds with a completely passive sleeping woman In the film the man in uestion is a nurse in a hospital caring for an accomplished ballerina who is in a coma In Melancholy Whores the lover is a man who has just turned ninety and falls in love with a 14 year old prostitute who he visits every night while she sleeps deeply possibly drugged If you choose to put aside the creepy elements and focus on the romantic sentiment and poetic pedestal that Delgadina the name the old man invents for his nameless whore is placed atop the book is a very beautiful reflection on the need for love and the degradations of aging If you can't put is aside this is a story of a strange pedophilic attachment that certainly should not be romanticized Both the Almodovar film and this book romanticize and rhapsodize about the perfectly passive woman a woman as little than an object and construct fantasy relationships with someone who never speaks or even opens her eyes I once saw an issue of Hustler that had this photo of The Ideal Woman She had Jack Daniels coming out of one nipple and milk out of the other Guacamole issued from her nether regions and stuffed in her mouth was a tampon The caption explained that since this woman menstruated from her mouth she was completely silent for about a week every month This is of course disgustingly crude but take away the frills of magical realism and I feel like Memories of My Melancholy Whores is not that differentThere are definite high points The protagonist's reflections on aging were sharp and funny The epic nature of the love described in the text whips you away on a Sleeping BeautyBeauty and the Beast fairy tale romance that evokes true punch in the stomach emotion But in the end this princess is a pre pubescent prostitute who slaves away sewing on buttons all day to take care of her family and spends her nights fondled and admired by an aged delusional beast who will never take her away from reality in princely fashion In the end for me anyway the ick factor breaks the spell

    A Latin American Lolita Lite or Don't Let The Title Scare You This Isn't A Dirty Old Man BookIt’s been years since I've read anything by Gabriel García Máruez and so this little book while not as grand sweeping or substantial as the works that earned him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982 came as a lovely gentle surpriseReading it felt like catching up with a grizzled old friend who can tell a mean story García Máruez’s seductive writing has a perfumed air of nostalgia and romance about it Once sniffed it's impossible to tear yourself awayTake the book’s remarkable opening line “The year I turned ninety I wanted to give myself the gift of a night of wild love with an adolescent virgin” The unnamed narrator isn’t as lecherous as he sounds He’s “ugly shy and anachronistic” a journalist who used to rewrite wire copy and now supplements his income by teaching Spanish lessons and penning a newspaper column He never married although he was once engaged and doesn’t have any children And until now he’s never been in loveYes this is a story about a man who’s gone nearly a century without finding love And now old wrinkled his joints and other things creaky he falls With passion And frustration And jealousy But absolutely no regretsThe object of his love isn’t all that important in the book She’s kept intentionally vague often seen sleeping she works at a factory sewing on buttons her tired back usually turned to the narrator We're not even told her real name although the narrator calls her “Delgadina” after the lyrics of a favourite songThe fact is the burst of energy the man gets from his rather chaste relationship with Delgadina suddenly gives his life meaning and purpose His columns many of them now about love become famous in town; radio hosts read them to thousands of listeners He gets the nickname “the maestro of love” People recognize him on the streets García Máruez's powers of description are as strong as ever The pacing is impeccable Several characters – from the brothel madame Rosa Cabarcas to the narrator's hard working tireless maid – snap to life in a few sharp sentences and lines of dialogue As a 90th birthday present the old man is given an old cat who pads his way through a few scenes without becoming too obvious a symbol In one heartbreaking episode the narrator hooks up with an old sexual partner and instead of getting physical they talk honestly about their lives and their age which feels even intimate than sexThere's not one wasted word García Máruez has distilled his art to its very essence One caveat If you're too young you may not get as much out of this You need to have chalked up some regrets It's one of those the unexamined life is not worth living booksPrepare to think about your own history of love To be nostalgic for a time and place you never even knew To laugh and weep over the surprises joys and melancholic moments of a long fully inhabited life

    The year I turned ninety I wanted to give myself the gift of a night of wild love with an adolescent virginLove him hate him You got to give García Máruez some credit The man can write an opening line And so begins an intriguing story of a man who finally falls in love at the ripe age of 90 with a 14 year old prostitute If you're familiar with García Máruez's oeuvre of work prostitution and underage sex would be just a walk in the park for most However I must warn you of these themes if you cannot stomach itI'd call this Sleeping Beauty with a Máruez twist The subject matter may be difficult to discuss considering that we as a society have constantly frowned at sex and its association with the elderly No it isn't the erotic fantasy of a dirty old man The narrative has its sensuality and a tragic sense of heart rendering passion that is always unfulfilled yet it is still wholesome at the core I'd definitely recommend this for an evening read as it is a relatively short story


  10. says:

    I really didn't like this story The writing as always was wonderful the descriptions the language the character development all excellent The story however was extremely disturbing and sad Chapter 1 in particular when the narrator describes how upon turning 90 he decided he wanted to have sex with a young virgin was appalling Then the local madam finds a 14 year old poor illiterate girl for him He goes to see her and finds her asleep because she had been so afraid she had to be sedated Although he doesn't have sex with her because she's asleep he describes her naked body in detail describing her pre pubescent breasts etc It was disgusting and disturbingThis book wasn't written in a time when this was even discreetly acceptable it was written in 2004 when it is considered by most societies certainly Garcia Maruez's society as taboo He did it to shock and titillate well all it did was disgust me He's a brilliant writer he doesn't need these gimmicks
