A budding poet and his adoring mother are the central characters of this intriguing early novel by Milan Kundera. He takes us through the young man's fantasies and love affairs in a characteristic tour de force, alive with wit, eroticism, and ideas.

"Mythical and ranges over many worlds"
I thoroughly enjoyed this. It opened up new thoughts and dimensions constantly. Post structuralist at times and surreal at other times, it has a good story at its heart. And it was written in 1973... I'd only come across Laughter and Forgetting before. Thank you Faber and Faber
