Author Info
Milan Kundera
Milan Kundera's father was a pianist who also taught his son, but Milan abandoned music to study at the Prague Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, specializing in screenwriting and directing. Kundera was briefly a member of the Communist Party; however, he spoke out against the Soviets after the Communist takeover of Czechoslovakia in 1968, and emigrated to Paris in 1975 when his work was suppressed. In 1981 he became a French citizen. He has written poetry, plays, and nonfiction in addition to his novels and short stories. His best-known book--also made into a popular film, is THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING, which takes place during and after the Soviet invasion. His work has provided Western readers with an authentic glimpse into the repressive world behind the Iron Curtain.
