Memories of My Melancholy Whores (Vintage International) by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Memories of My Melancholy Whores (Vintage International)

shep_9, September 27, 2011

I am a BIG fan of Marquez. I have read at least half a dozen of his books/novellas and this is my second favorite. First, it's short. Marquez's style is very much, for me, like Hemingway. That rambling prose with very deep stories and connections that take some paying attention... Marquez isn't a pick it up, put it down, and pick it up 4 months later kind of a writer. So this novella was very manageable. This story, along with much of his work, may not appeal to all as it includes questionable sexual practices. But I love his stories and the way he tells them. They are so rich and involved.
