Summary

La esperada nueva novela de Mathias Enard, ganador del Premio Goncourt 2015, es un espléndido homenaje a la naturaleza y a las costumbres de la vida rural.

Un estudiante de antropología, sumergido en un estudio sobre «la vida en el campo en el siglo XXI», se instala en un pueblo ficticio de la marisma de Poitou para observar las costumbres de sus pintorescos habitantes. En todos los lugares del mundo la muerte atrapa a los vivos, sin embargo, en esta zona del noroeste de Francia la muerte ofrece tres días de tregua al año, respetando el banquete tradicional que anualmente celebra la Cofradía de los Sepultureros. Enard regresa a su Francia natal con una novela río que fluye y gira como la rueda de la vida. Tira de los hilos de la historia de múltiples personajes en una tela de araña narrativa donde confluyen diferentes épocas, espacios y los seres vivos que habitan o que alguna vez habitaron el lugar.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The long-awaited new novel by Mathias Enard, winner of the 2015 Goncourt Prize, is a splendid tribute to nature and the customs of rural life.
 
An anthropology student, immersed in his studies of "country life in the 21st century," settles in a fictional town on the Poitou marsh to observe the customs of its picturesque residents. In all parts of the world death always catches up with the living, however, in this area of northwestern France death offers a three-day truce every year, respecting the traditional banquet held annually by the Brotherhood of the Gravediggers. Enard returns to his native France with a novel that flows and turns like the wheels of life; it pulls the threads of the story and its multiple characters in a narrative spider web where different times, spaces, and living beings -that inhabit or once inhabited the place- converge.
