Durante este tiempo se ha convertido en alguien primary para infinidad de lectores, que aguardan con impaciencia su dosis semanal de valentía, originalidad, argumentaciones sólidas, sentido del humor y excelente prosa. El periodo aquí cubierto es el de los angeles genuine problem económica y política, por lo que su tono es quizá más amargo que en otras ocasiones.

Pero en sus artículos también hay lo que el autor llama «treguas», de modo que el lector encontrará piezas emotivas o divertidas y siempre agudas: sobre l. a. muerte de su tío, el músico Odón Alonso, o el caso Strauss-Kahn, o los angeles nueva Ortografía de los angeles RAE, sobre cómo Mourinho lo ha llevado a ser menos madridista que nunca, o los premios literarios, o sus peripecias en una adusta librería de Viena, o los héroes de los tebeos de su infancia, o los angeles conmovedora carta de un lector...

Sin duda Tiempos ridículos enviará a l. a. papelera muchos recortes, porque eso es lo que muchos lectores hacen con las columnas de Javier Marías: las recortan y las guardan, para darse ánimos al releerlas y renovar el placer.

«Sí, vivimos tiempos ridículos. Lo peor es que en España los angeles mayoría de los angeles gente se siente en ellos como pez en el agua.»
