    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 t

    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 pa

Review Memoria de mis putas tristes

Mascotas y lleno de manías Por él sabremos cómo en todas sus aventuras sexuales ue no fueron pocas. 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 Garc a M ruez 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 M ruez 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

Siempre dio a cambio algo de dinero pero nunca imaginó ue de ese modo encontraría el verdadero amo. 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
