Memoria de mis putas tristes

Beauty at his side it is he who awakens to a romance he has never known Tender knowing and slyly comic Memories of My Melancholy Whores is an exuisite addition to the master’s work back cover. 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 Garc a M ruez 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 Garc a M ruez 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 Garc a M ruez 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 Garc a M ruez 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

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
