about this book

An elderly journalist decides to celebrate his 90th year in a grand way, giving himself a present that will make him feel like he’s still alive: a young virgin. In the brothel of a picturesque town, the moment comes where he sees the girl from the back, completely naked, and his life changes radically. When he meets her he finds himself close to dying, not of old age, but rather of love.

This moving new novel, the first in ten years, celebrates the joys of being in love and meditates on the misfortunes of old age, radiantly written in Gabriel García Márquez’s unparalleled style.
