What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper

The first UK edition, first impression stated of this work. Originally published in French, translated by Linda Asher. 

This short novel focuses on a couple, and the intricacies of their relationship and with their sense of identity. Kundera explores the problem f identity with his usual philosophical approach, seeing identity not as an autonomous entity but as something that is shaped by the identities of others and their relationship to your own. 

Milan Kundera is a Czech writer, exiled in France in 1975 and becoming a French citizen in 1981. He sees himself as a French writer and insists his works to be studied as part of French literature. The Unbearable Lightness of Being is his most renowned novel. His writing was banned by the communist régime in Czechoslovakia before the Velvet Revolution of 1989. He was awarded the 1985 Jerusalem Prize, in 1987 the Austrian State Prize for European Literature, and the 2000 Herder Prize.
