Mario Vargas Llosa emplea esta 'piedra de toque' para seguir el curso de la política, la cultura, los problemas sociales, el arte o los sucesos de actualidad de los últimos años: los viejos amigos con quienes se relacionaba en Barcelona en los años sesenta, la despenalización del aborto en España, los problemas derivados de la emigración, etc. El lenguaje de la pasión ofrece la visión y el análisis de la convulsa sociedad del fin de siglo de uno de los intelectuales más lúcidos de la literatura contemporánea, quien además aporta las claves para entender la complejidad de nuestro tiempo.
