About This Book

"When the writer Rosa Regas won the Planeta Prize, I was driving in my car and I heard her acceptance speech live on the radio. Rosa Regas said, 'Thank you for this prize. With the money I can buy something that is not sold: time.' When I heard that, I started to wonder what would happen if in a society like ours in the West, time could be bought. The result is this book." --Fernando Trias de Bes

The Time Seller, the second book of business fiction from Fernando Trias de Bes - coauthor of the internationally acclaimed bestseller Good Luck - is not your standard business model book nor a "get with the program" corporate drone story. It breaks the mold and offers a funny (and perhaps existential) meditation on time, work, meaning, and the true costs of "selling out" to the system. Trias de Bes has written an acerbic commentary that seeks to awaken those bound to a routine that has become the source of alienation.

This deceptively simple story reminds us that the system should take from the individual only the time that is fair and absolutely necessary, and it should, in turn, provide him or her with the means to express love, humanity, spirituality, cooperation, solidarity, and help for others. Well-written and truly original, The Time Seller is destined to become a cult classic.
