A Perfect Vacuum - Stanislaw Lem

Original title: Doskonała próżnia.

This is a collection of perfect yet imaginary reviews of nonexistent books. With insidious wit, the author beguiles us with a parade of delightful, disarmingly familiar inventions. A review of A Perfect Vacuum itself is included.
