Memoirs Found in a Bathtub

204 pages4 hours


The absurdly brilliant far-future satire from “the Borges of scientific culture” (Time).
The year is 3149, and a vast paper destroying blight—papyralysis—has obliterated much of the planet’s written history. Fortunately, these rare memoirs, preserved for centuries in a volcanic rock, record the strange life of a man trapped in a hermetically sealed underground community . . .
From the Kafka Prize–winning author of Solaris, this is an entertaining and thought-provoking blend of politics, philosophy, humor, and science fiction.
Translated by Michael Kandel and Christine Rose
