Perhaps the most brilliantly plotted & sheerly entertaining of Milan Kunderas 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 writers works.
