MERDA A LA PUNTA DEL DITS
La Produktiva Books, 2018
More than half a life of adventures and misadventures in the music world has provided Ramon Solé with material and inspiration for his first novel. The composer from Caldes de Montbui presents Merda a la punta dels dits (shit in the fingertips), the story of an artist with a dangerous obsession for success. The main character is Jou, a musician who has broken his back and lost his health to be a rockstar and lead a life of travels, luxury, parties, mass gigs, fans,…But today, almost turning 40, he’s accomplished none of it: he’s lonelier than ever before, still lives with his mother and works in a boring office; precisely the kind of life he’s sworn a thousand times he’d never have. Besides, the anguish devours him because youth is ending and the dream is farther every day. All this will cause a collapse which will push Jou to the most unexpected, strange experience of his life.
