(7.75 x 5.15 x 0.5 inches). 237 pages. Translated from the Czech by Michael Henry Heim. Language: English. Weight: 6.6 ounces. Writers from the Other Europe Series. Trade Paperback. In one of the finer modern ironies of the life-imitates-art sort, the country that Kundera seemed to be writing about when he talked about Czechoslovakia is, thanks to the latest political redefinitions, no longer precisely there. This kind of disappearance and reappearance is, partly, what Kundera explores in The Book of Laughter and Forgetting. In this polymorphous work -- now a novel, now autobiography, now a philosophical treatise -- Kundera discusses life, music, sex, philosophy, literature and politics in ways that are rarely politically correct, never classifiable but always original, entertaining and definitely brilliant.

You will feel the part of a kid again reading about the exploits of the brilliant but small "Boy" named Porter Osborne Jr. on his family's Georgia farm during the Great Depression. It doesn't matter what part of America you are from, you will love this brilliant example of captivating storytelling!
