Read full description of the books:
"It is hard to imagine anything more chilling & profound than Kundera's apparent lightheartedness."--Elizabeth Pochoda
In this dark farce of a novel, set in an old-fashioned Central Euroepean spa town, eight characters are swept up in an accelerating dance: a pretty nurse & her repairman boyfriend; an oddball gynecologist; a rich American (at once saint & Don Juan); a popular trumpeter & his beautiful, obsessively jealous wife; an unillusioned former political prisoner about to leave his country & his young woman ward. Perhaps the most brilliantly plotted & sheerly entertaining of Milan Kundera's novels, Farewell Waltz poses the most serious questions with a blasphemous lightness that makes us see that the modern world has deprived us even of the right to tragedy. Written in Bohemia in 1969-70, this book was first published in 1976 in France under the title La valse aux adieux (Farewell Waltz), & later in thirty-four other countries. This beautiful new translation, made from the French text prepared by the novelist himself, fully reflects his own tone & intentions. As such it offers an opportunity for both the discovery & the rediscovery of one of the very best of a great writer's works.

Read information about the authorMilan Kundera is a Czech and French writer of Czech origin who has lived in exile in France since 1975, where he became a naturalized citizen in 1981. He is best known as the author of The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, and The Joke.
Kundera has written in both Czech and French. He revises the French translations of all his books; these therefore are not considered translations but original works.
Due to censorship by the Communist government of Czechoslovakia, his books were banned from his native country, and that remained the case until the downfall of this government in the Velvet Revolution in 1989.
