On the eve of his ninetieth birthday, a bachelor decides to
give himself a wild night of love with a virgin. As is his habit—he has
purchased hundreds of women—he asks a madam for her assistance. The
fourteen-year-old girl who is procured for him is enchanting, but exhausted as
she is from caring for siblings and her job sewing buttons, she can do little
but sleep. Yet with this sleeping 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 exquisite addition to a master’s work.
