a comprehensibility key:

1) Riddley Walker is by Russell Hoban, not Stanislaw Lem
2) the kid/d ends up back at the beginning, and the moon is george harrison is Delaney
3) brings us by a commodius vicus of recirculation back to Howth Castle and Environs is Joyce

ten years pass...

"One of these unwritten books, I could title: 'Stupidity as the driving force of history.' In fact, if you look at many of the tragic events of the past, it turns out that at the beginning of their usual stupidity lay. When she is dozing in an ordinary man in the street, she is usually not noticed. But when it appears in people who decide the destinies of peoples, it always tragically affects the course of history."
