Reviews

"An intellectual heavyweight and a pure literary virtuoso, Milan Kundera takes some of Freud's most cherished complexes and irreverently whirls them about in acts of legerdemain that capture our darkest, deepest human passions?The tales in "Laughable Loves" surprise and illuminate?Kundera's world is complex, full of mockeries and paradoxes. Life is often brutal and humiliating; it is often blasphemous, funny, irritating."-- Abe Ravitz, "Cleveland Plain Dealer""Milan Kundera offers a very special blend of sympathy and cynicism, irony and affability, that is unmatched in our literature." -- Thomas Joyce, " Chicago Sun-Times" "Light, wry, and wise."-- John Skow, "Time""Buoyantly energetic and virtuosic."-- Walter Clemons, "Newsweek"
