One of my favorite old books: The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera



The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1984), by Milan Kundera, is a philosophical novel about a

man and two women and their lives in the Prague Spring of the Czechoslovak Communist period in 1968.

A man torn between thought and emotion, between love and lust.

It shows how vulnerable we are, and how miserable we can be made by our contradictory desires, aspirations and impulses.

"How can life ever be a good teacher if there is only one of them to be lived? How can one perform life when the dress rehearsal for life is life?"
