I heard it about 15 or more years ago as radio drama.
The plot was about space flying by the black hole (or something similar). Spaceship needed maintenance but the traveller was allone. However space-time loops somehow created yesterday version of him. This "yesterday him" was afraid original him, did not talk and hid. So somehow appeared "tomorrow him" and so on. Somehow every other "him" was with different issues and hope to use multiple hands to fix the spaceship was lost. And flying away from black hole made other "him"-s also dissapear.
That is all i can remember.

Thank You!

Eimar, I added a few details to the topic header/title, so someone can recognize your book from that description alone. Feel free to edit it.

"The Seventh Voyage" in the "Star Diaries" by Stanislaw Lem? A spaceship defect forces Ijon Tichy through a series of time vortices, creating a multitude of temporal copies of himself.

This is a graphic novel version: The Seventh Voyage: Star Diaries. If this is your book, we'll look for a better Goodreads link.
