Overview: A look at the intellectual and artistic life of Prague before and after Communism.
What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:
Chris: “A beautiful book about the effect of Communist occupation on the artists of Prague. None of the characters is particularly likable, but all are memorable.”
Ethan: “The Unbearable Lightness of Being picks up in that near corner of history where your world history class left off. 1960’s Czechoslovakia was a fascinating and frustrating time, and Kundera captures it perfectly.”
