«Este libro nació como los angeles crónica de un viaje realizado por dos amigos, pero el tiempo, los cambios violentos de l. a. economía y los angeles voracidad de los triunfadores lo transformaron en un libro de noticias póstumas, en los angeles novela de una región desaparecida»

Compañeros de viaje y de aventuras vitales y literarias, Luis Sepúlveda y Daniel Mordzinski habían realizado —hasta el proyecto Últimas noticias del Sur— docenas de reportajes para revistas y periódicos. Siempre por encargo. Siempre limitados en espacio para textos y en número de fotografías. Sujetos, como cube el escritor, «a voluntades que oscilan entre lo políticamente correcto y el miedo a perder el empleo».

Vive en un tiempo irreal, una vida entre paréntesis: el verano, un fin de semana largo, una escapada, cualquier periodo vacacional con fecha de caducidad. Si no los angeles tuviese, condenado a perpetuidad como las nieves del Himalaya, este tiempo suspendido mostraría, quizá, un reverso inquietante.

El mar, el río, los angeles piscina, una playa o una isla... l. a. mayoría de estos relatos están rodeados de agua e invitan a los personajes a armonizar con su entorno typical. Son cuentos que se pueden leer con los pies descalzos, a riesgo de que se queden helados repentinamente.

En El turista perpetuo, Harkaitz Cano, ganador del Premio de los angeles Crítica en euskera por su narrativa breve, propone un conjunto variado de personajes y de tramas en las que  impera el suspense, l. a. crítica social, l. a. experimentación, el humor o el diálogo con grandes autores de relatos como Alice Munro, Raymond Carver o Julio Cortázar, en un itinerario por los temas que nutren su prosa: los angeles amistad, l. a. decepción, l. a. violencia y el poder, el arte y los afectos, los angeles intimidad y el misterio.
