Comment: UK despatch within 24 hours by 2nd class post; expedited UK delivery available (1st class signed for); airmail despatch for international orders. Very good condition copy, possibly never read because the binding and pages are still crisp and stiff. However, there are some minor faults (which is remarkable given that the book was published in September 1976) - there is some mild fading to the spine and a tiny hole in the front cover underneath the middle section of the 'M' in 'LEM'. This tiny tiny hole has penetrated through to page 20, however it has not caused any loss of text or readability. A nice copy. Storyline: In 'Memoirs Found in a Bathtub', Stanislaw Lem projects a future America where a Uranian virus threatens the destruction of all paper. The final stronghold of the "papyrocracy" is the hermetically sealed underground structure known only as "The Building". Its labyrinthine net of corridors is a world of complete subterfuge - with polygraphy mittens, bugged percolators, and microphone pillows. Into the clockwork precision of this vestigial Pentagon plunges a young wanderer, unaware of the self-devouring complex of espionage that is a way of life, the rhythm of The Building
