Hi! I wanted to recommend you this book, it may be not well known outside Poland, but in my opinion it is at least marvellous and would fit for lainchan community. Full of comism and absurdity, but also contains mind-blowing message.
P.S. I am not sure if translations are as good as original book, but I hope so. Have a nice read.
>>5322 There is translation of trans-atlantic, but one should read it only if he has some knowledge about polish culture. Ferdydurke on the oder hand is 100% universal book.
And about Lem, I am sure that Solaris is very popular book worldwide. But purpose of this thread was to introduce lainons to Ferdydurke, not to promote polish literature (but of course Lem may be worth reading too)
