Memoirs of a Space Traveler: Further reminiscences of Ijon Tichy



CHECK PRICE ON WORDERY ➜

Lem in his most fantastic vein. By turns philosophical, satirical, and absurd, Lem’s stories follow Ijon’s adventures as both an observer of—and participant in—strange experiments. Faulty time machines, intelligent washing machines, suicidal potatoes—Ijon Tichy navigates them all with common sense and in so doing shows why he endures as one of Lem's most popular characters. "Lem is Poland's best-known writer in the West, a Jorge Luis Borges for the Space Age, who plays in earnest with every concept of philosophy and physics, from free will to probability theory." THE NEW YORK TIMES
