Journal Entry 1 by Janeka from Reguengos de Monsaraz, Évora Portugal on Friday, July 28, 2017
'The year I turned ninety, I wanted to give myself the gift of a night of wild love with an adolescent virgin'

Memories of My Melancholy Whores is a sensual and hypnotic journey through the mind of a man discovering love for the first time after a lifetime filled with hundreds of different women. The nights spent sleeping side-by-side with his 'Delgadina' fill his soul with an unexpected longing. He feels her presence when she is not there. The now passionate meditations of his newspaper columns are bound up in love and received by a rapturous, growing readership, and in his imagination – as real for him as memories – he sees them together as they might have been. This is a story of one man's reassessment of his life as he awakens to the transformative power of love.
