Field of Broom
(Campo de retamas)
For the first time and in a single volume, thedefinitive collection of all of Rafael SánchezFerlosio’s flotsam. The dictionary defines flotsam as“floating wreckage of a ship or its cargo” and also asthe fragments therein. By titling his pieces this way,Ferlosio is suggesting that in his case these are theadventures that succumbed to a shipwreck of thewill, and only these fragmentary pieces remain.
