SERIES:Nuevos cuadernos Anagrama
What makes up a landscape? How do we tell its story; blend in with it? Limbos terrestres is full of notes and attempts to answer these questions.
Shamanic rituals, the drummer who defeated Napoleon in 1808, a mayor who stammers before Franco, and asparagus who spot UFOs: everything goes in El Bruc, a municipality at the foot of Montserrat that can be understood as a palimpsest.
The author, a foreigner who has barely landed, surrenders to the biological rhythm of the mountain and observes and experiences it from his different levels that are symbolic and mystical; historical, global, and local. In this way, he learns to stop searching: experiencing depersonalization in a final act of camouflage with the landscape.
