Today’s choice is The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera
Genre: Fiction, European literature
Synopsis (from Goodreads):
A story of irreconcilable love and infidelities in which Kundera addresses himself to the nature of 20th-century being, offering a wide range of brilliant and amusing philosophical speculations. Encompasses the extremes of comedy and tragedy and was at once hailed by critics as a contemporary classic. – Goodreads
This is the beautiful edition from Faber & Faber publications which I got from the World Book Fair this year. Kundera’s works are idiosyncratic, to say the least. From the synopsis, I feel that it is not a storyline but psychological musings of the author. I really have high expectations from this book.
That’s all for this week. Thank you for reading. Let me know in the comments if you have read this one or any other European works!
