El Asphodelus es una mítica flor que de siempre ha fascinado a literatos, mitólogos, fabuladores, músicos, grandes conquistadores... Y a los dioses del Olimpo. Este modesto lirio, resistente a las plagas y a sequias, fue el elegido por los dioses para alfombrar l. a. antesala del Averno y el sendero a l. a. Eternidad. Alejandro Magno obsequiaba a Hefestión, su amado lugarteniente, con un ramo de asphodelus tras sus victorias, y escritores malditos como Edgard Allan Poe alumbraban sus noches de alcohol y opio con asphodelus como "pequeñas gemas".

Los personajes de esta novela descubren además una rara cualidad de esta celebrada flor: el asphodelus nunca se marchita.

Con el telón de fondo de unos años cruciales en los angeles moderna historia de España y con l. a. Guerra Civil (1936/1939) en el horizonte, los protagonistas de esta narración sentimental corren --entre utopías e iluminaciones-- hacia un destino inevitable.

La rabiosa juventud. El sentimiento fáustico de l. a. vida. Un verano en el campo.
