The Book of Laughter and Forgetting is the most secret of Kundera’s novels. This new translation is the first to be fully authorized by Milan Kundera.
This book is a novel in the form of variations. The various parts follow each other like the various stages of a voyage leading into the interior of a theme, the interior of a thought, the interior of a single, unique situation the understanding of which recedes from my sight into the distance. It is a book about laughter and about forgetting, about forgetting and about Prague, about Prague and about the angels.
