About this book
Discusses the hardships of man in today's world and looks at the antidotes, laughter and forgetting. Translated by Aaron Asher. The author's new novel, "Slowness", is published in April.
Kundera whirls through comedy and tragedy towards his central question: how does a person, any person, live today? In constructing his answer, he writes of politics, sex, literature, modern man's alienation - and of their antidotes: laughter and forgetting.
