Ing 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 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 Garc a M ruez 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 Garc a M ruez s oeuvre of work prostitution and underage sex would be just a walk in the park for most However I must warn you of these themes if you cannot stomach itI d call this Sleeping Beauty with a M ruez twist The subject matter may be difficult to discuss considering that we as a society have constantly frowned at sex and its association with the elderly No it isn t the erotic fantasy of a dirty old man The narrative has its sensuality and a tragic sense of heart rendering passion that is always unfulfilled yet it is still wholesome at the core I d definitely recommend this for an evening read as it is a relatively short story
