Stanislaw Lem and translated by Peter Swirski
Stanislaw Lem was the internationally acclaimed author of many books, and has been cited as the most widely read science fiction writer in the world.
Introduction Letters, 1972-1987 Appendices Select Bibliography Index
In those moments when Lem pauses and steps away from his career as author and critic, he reveals himself as a man continually haunted by the Holocaust, as an irascible elder aware of his foibles, and an imaginative philosophe.
Lem emerges from Peter Swirski’s mastery of his subject in both the stunning breadth of his genius and a humanity forged by the nightmare of modern Polish history.
New York University
Utterly absorbing, absolutely first-rate Lem and first-rate Swirski.
