Saul lives alone in the middle of the desert, with only an iguana named Nebraska. He came here to say goodbye to someone. Saul knows it's important to say goodbye to the dead, otherwise they become ghosts and their souls wander sadly around the world. He knows this because some of those souls visit him every day in his caravan.
Red sand, burnt thistles, beer and one overfed iguana. A modern variation on the classic American generation drama, author Sophie Merceron mixes poetic language with harsh reality, human instinct with refinement and beauty.
