solaris3A strange story, something that could have been scribbled down after a nightmare by an appartchik. It’s set in a communist state where everyone is expected to relinquish their teeth at adulthood, to ensure the wall of teeth that protects the state from the evil of capitalism, the satire looks at love, opting out of the teeth removal, and a night spent amongst pickled eels. In the closing paragraphs one of the protagonists takes a piss, as Watson takes the piss throughout.
