Note Translation of: Memoria de mis putas tristes.
Summary ""Vspominai︠a︡ moikh neschastnykh shli︠u︡shek" is Gabriel García Márquez's first work of fiction in ten years, written at the height of his powers. 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"-- From English language publisher.
