Lucy Day Werts Yes! Enjoyed it.

Lem, who was fluent in English, was reportedly not happy with the previous English translation from French, which uses different character names.

There is some information about the author and the available editions online at We Love Translations: World Literature in English:
Eladir Yeah but I didn't actually read it, I had it narrated through the audiobook. Can't compare with the older translation since the newer one was my first experience but I was satisfied by it.
