Event Type

Our exploration of Jewish Fantasy and Science Fiction continues with The Cyberiad, a playful, insightful and visionary masterwork by Polish/Jewish author Stanislaw Lem:

“Trurl and Klapaucius are ‘constructors’ — they travel around the universe creating machines of astonishing inventiveness and power and visiting a bewildering variety of violent, peculiar and morose civilizations. The Cyberiad is oddly reminiscent of ​Gulliver’s Travels, ​The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, ​The Phantom Tollbooth and ​Alice in Wonderland. Charming, mind-bending and anarchic, it is perhaps Lem’s greatest work.” (From The London Review Bookshop)
