A novel about a 90 years old man falling in love with a 14 years old prostitute is a moving story about love finding a way to people when they give up hoping it will ever happen to them. As always, Marquez puts us on a seesaw of feelings - evoking joy after pitty and hope after defeatism over a protagonist who seems to be a childlike paedophile. A bohemian journalist never slept with a woman without paying for it and for his 90th birthday he wishes for a virgin. In a brothel he visits he ends up in a room with a sleeping girl. He doesn't wake her because he falls in love with her sleeping image. From that night on he comes to read children's book to his "virgin lover" Read the complete review
