Editorial Review“There is a timeless quality to his philosophy about the importance of laughter…Kundera is still the powerful and incisive writer he always was.” (New York Times Book Review) “Compelling…That Kundera has his tongue half in his cheek is part of the charm… offers both a continuation of Kundera’s signature investigations and a reaction to the toxicity of the present day.” (Los Angeles Times) “Kundera doesn’t present himself as a priest of the novel who, having been inducted into its higher mysteries, now deigns to share his brilliance with mere mortals. He is simply one character among others in the novel, curious, perplexed, and amused by the spectacle of human nature.” (New Republic)
