Title: Memories of My Melancholy Whores
Author: Gabriel García Márquez
Publisher: Vintage International
Age has not diminished Gabriel García
author of One Hundred Years of Solitude. His most recent novel, Memories
of My Melancholy Whores is slight in physical stature only because of the
remarkable compression of style Márquez has achieved. It is his
first novel in 10 years not because he has retired but because he has been
apparently working on a screenplay of his epic One Hundred Years and fighting
lymphatic cancer, which is bound to distract anyone.
Kansai Scene, October 2006
Words of praise for Weed from a publisher in London.
"... it’s really witty and very strong ... I would compare the writing to Robert Rankin, or a really satirically biting Tom Sharpe, and will say again that I’m really impressed by it"
