- More About The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera; Michael Henry HeimOverviewWhat We're Reading Now:
The Unbearable Lightness of Being can, without a doubt, be called a modern classic. I discovered in Milan Kundera, an author whose novel reads like poetry. It is one of the most engrossing books I have read in a long time. This book is ideal for anyone interested in human interaction and love.

A young woman in love with a man torn between his love for her and his incorrigible womanizing one of his mistresses and her humbly faithful lover--these are the two couples whose story is told in this masterful novel. In a world in which lives are shaped by irrevocable choices and by fortuitous events, a world in which everything occurs but once, existence seems to lose its substance, its weight. Hence, we feel "the unbearable lightness of being" not only as the consequence of our private actions, but also in the public sphere, and the two inevitably intertwine.
