Cosmonaut, time-traveller and battered hero of
The Futurological Congress, Ijon Tichy makes his triumphant return,
recording a dazzling array of voyages in time and space.
Caught in a time-warp, pleading a shaky case for humanity
at the intergalactic United Nations,
spying ineptly on a planet whose robot inhabitants speak
a grubby version of Chaucerian English,
Tichy’s diaries are bizarre, unpredictable, frantic and sometimes deeply disturbing.
