Rediscover a Sci-Fi masterwork
Brilliant, enigmatic, and revelatory, The Snail on the Slope is a neglected masterpiece by Russian Sci-Fi greats Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, who thought of it as their "most complete and important work."
The novel takes place in two worlds. One is the Administration, an institution run by a surreal, Kafka-esque bureaucracy whose aim is to govern the forest below. The other is the forest, a place of fear, weird creatures, primitive but garrulous people, and violence. Peretz, who works at the Administration, wants to visit the forest. Candide, who crashed in the forest years ago, wants to return to the Administration. As they journey through these mysterious worlds, their paths will take surprising and bizarre twists.
