+Mum gave this to me for Christmas 2020.
+
+It's a collection of short sci-fi stories about Trurl and Klapaucius, two "constructors".
+Most of the characters are some form of intelligent machine, including the constructors, and the latter are seemingly capable of building anything -- including a machine to divine knowledge from the moving atoms in a drinks can, or which can create anything that starts with the letter N.
+Usually the story ends by illustrating the folly of wanting such a machine.
+
+The whimsical nature put me in mind of Douglas Adams, although it's a very different style.
