Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item
Milan Kundera's critically acclaimed Life Is Elsewhere is an epic of adolescence; an ironic tale that tenderly erodes sacrosanct values such as childhood, motherhood, revolution, and even poetry. Jaromil is a ridiculous and touching character, horrifying and totally innocent. And a true poet. He is Rimbaud, entrapped by the communist revolution, entrapped in a somber farce. Now available after having been out of print, this edition includes a new postface by Kundera and a new, clearer translation.
