(p.237) Twelve The Unending Love Story
García Márquez

Gene H. Bell-Villada

University of North Carolina Press

Even on his sixties and seventies, García Márquez still produced well-written narratives that explored male–female attraction and love. These novels pushed the customary boundaries of romantic experience and ultimately surprise readers along the way. These novels, Of Love and Other Demons and Memories of My Melancholy Whores, both depict a story between an older man and an early adolescent girl. Even though Of Love did not enjoy much fame compared to García Márquez's other novels, it is still complex and multilayered. The “secondary” characters are examined in more detail as they stand out as much as the two lovers in the novel.
