Buscar la utopia es querer encontrar el paraiso, y viceversa. Alejo Carpentier lo intentó por medio de un riquisimo lenguaje, de la naturaleza exuberante. Los pasos perdidos es un descenso a las raices, una travesía cargada de símbolos y de un a ancestral tradición cultural. Esta novela, escrita narra un viaje de vuelta: el protagonista, musicólogo, emprende una expedición al país de su infancia en busca de instrumentos musicales primitivos, al mismo tiempo, es una fuga: huye de un trabajo sinsentido, de una sociedad corrompida.
