Kundera: His Czech Life and Times
Sept. 1, 2020
Jan Novák
Fiction: General/Other
Rather than a conventional scholarly biography, this book on Milan Kundera is an openly personal one – although it is indeed based on rigorous research of archival materials, contemporary documents, individual witness testimonies and Kundera’s published texts. Novák is not intimidated by the topic and does not shy away from formulating direct and daring judgments. Where there is insufficient evidence in the sources, he poses questions and hypotheses about the possible motives for Kundera’s actions and artistic choices.

Novák’s work is an extraordinary achievement, both as a piece of original research and an unconventionally framed portrait
