In this entertainingly lucid novel, Javier Valdes draws up a scathing attack on our preestablished values while portraying, with sharpness and good humor, a world that appears to be upside down -ours. We begin the story when a man decides to leave his job as an undertaker in order to start living. His interest is piqued by the case of an alleged rapist and, when visiting him in jail, he comes in contact with the Professor, a man accused of murdering little girls. Little by little he becomes tangled in the strings and loose ends of the story, opening the door to a world as disconcerting as it is sinister -a world inhabited by a Buddhist drug-dealer, a liberal priest, an honest and decent exotic dancer, and a CIA agent with a shady past. Perdiendo el tiempo encontrado directs us to reflect on how our prejudices limit us in the diverse and stimulating world we live in. Description in Spanish: Una critica mordaz y con gran sentido del humor sobre nuestros juicios morales y el mundo contemporaneo. En esta divertida y lucida novela, Javier Valdes lleva a cabo una critica de los valores preestablecidos a la vez que retrata, con mordacidad y buen humor, un mundo que parece estar de cabeza: el nuestro. La historia comienza cuando un hombre abandona su negocio en una funeraria y decide comenzar a vivir. Pronto se interesa por el caso de un presunto violador y, al visitarlo en la carcel, también entra en contacto con el Profesor, acusado de asesinar ninas. Poco a poco, empieza a seguir todos los hilos y cabos sueltos de esta historia, con lo cual se abren las puertas de un mundo tan desconcertante como siniestro, poblado de un narcotraficante que practica el budismo, un sacerdote absolutamente liberal, una teibolera decente y honrada y un agente de la CIA que esconde un turbio secreto. En medio de situaciones insolitas y con un estilo agil y preciso, Perdiendo el tiempo encontrado nos hace reflexionar sobre la limitacion de nuestros prejuicios frente a lo diverso y estimulante del mundo.
