About The Unbearable Lightness of Being

Milan Kundera traces the lives of two couples during the Soviet occupation of Prague, during the late 1960’s. The novel deep-heartedly charts their struggles against communism, their pasts, their lovers, and themselves. This novel juxtaposes geographically distant places and brilliant and playful reflections in a variety of styles.

Join our meeting October 5 to talk about The Unbearable Lightness of Being.
