Memories of My Melancholy Whores
by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
read: circa 2007
Gabriel Garcia Marquez' last novel (really more a novella), Memories of My Melancholy Whores was written almost two decades after Love in the Time of Cholera, but shares some of the same focus on aging. The protagonist is a man who is given a virgin prostitute for his 90th birthday, but the story is more touching than creepy. It's not his magnum opus, but it's a fitting final tale to a great writer's career.
