About This Book
After the gravity of The Unbearable Lightness of Being and Immortality, Slowness
comes as a surprise: it is certainly Kundera's lightest novel, a divertimento,
with, as the author himself says, "not a single serious word in it."
Disconcerted and enchanted, the reader follows the narrator through a midsummer's night in which two tales of seduction, sperated by more than two-hundred years, interweave and oscillate between the sublime and the comic, finally culminating in poignant cross-century encounter sure to linger in the reader's mind
Despite Kundera's disclaimer about the novel's seriousness, Slowness resonates with a profound meditation on contemporary life, the secret bond between slowness and memory, the connection between our era's desire to forget and the way we have given ourselves over to the demon of speed.
