Editorial reviews

A short, unsettling and offbeat love story from the author of The Unbearable Lightness of Being. Like most of us, Kundera's characters spend more time thinking about sex than having sex, but their thoughts are comic, erotic and profound. In this story a chic couple explore the limits of intimacy and the impossibility of possession. 'His jealousy was not the same sort as he had known in his youth... very gradually it was transforming a beloved woman into the simulacrum of a beloved woman.' (Kirkus UK)
