Original Title: De fems i de marbres

“Once upon a time, men and machines signed a wordless pact that obliged them to observe an ancient respect for the earth. The earth was patient and let them get on with it.” Manure and Marble is the trilogy that brings together The Entrails of the Earth, The Tree Without a Trunk and A Tongue of Lead, three collections of stories about men and women broken by the signs of the times of the last century, by the places where they lived, by the changes in the countryside and the city, by all and every one of the victories and the defeats that the battles they have lived have ended in. By means of extraordinary linguistic skill, Francesc Serés introduces us into a mythical world beyond the frontiers that separate life and literature, the inexhaustible universe of one of the most brilliant writers of our time.
