Lucas was just a child when his father sold him to another farmer as a laborer. Years later, Lucas returns, full of resentment and burning for revenge. After years away, Lucas returns uninvited to the home he was expelled from as a child. The garden has been conquered by weeds, which blanket his mother's beloved flowerbeds and his father's grave alike. A lot has changed since Eloy and Felisberto were invited into the family home to work for Lucas's father, long ago. The two hulking strangers have brought the land and everyone on it under their control--and removed nuisances like Lucas. Now everything rots. Lucas, a hardened young man, turns to a world that thrives in dirt and darkness: the world of insects. In raw, lyrical prose, Garc̕a Freire portrays a world brought low by human greed, while hinting at glimmers of hope in the unlikeliest places.
