    DescriptionMilan Kundera's brilliant new collection of essays is a passionate defense of art in an era that, he argues, no longer values art or beauty. With the same dazzling mix of emotion and ideas that characterizes his bestselling novels, the internationally acclaimed author revisits the artists whose works help us better understand what it means to be human. Elegant, startlingly original, and provocative, Encounter combines many of the author's signature themes with personal reflections and stories.

    Review quote
    "Cultivated, worldly, charming and spirited...Kundera's values are sane and humane; his impulses generous; his taste, overall, unimpeachable."--Phillip Lopate, San Francisco Chronicle
