Why We Love This

The Book of Laughter and Forgetting by Milan Kundera. NY: Alfred A. Knopf, 1980. First printing. Scarred by the post-war upheavals in his native Czechoslovakia, Kundera has veered from being a prominent teacher to dissident exile, living in other countries since 1975. He brings a deeply ironic perception to the business of survival, politically, sexually, as a committed humanitarian in a hostile world.
