The first novel by author of modern classic The Unbearable Lightness of Being, of which Salman Rushdie wrote: 'It is impossible to do justice here to the subtleties, comedy and wisdom of this very beautiful novel.'

Now, more than a quarter century after The Joke was first published and several years after the collapse of the Soviet-imposed Czechoslovak regime, it becomes easier to put such implications into perspective in favor of valuing the book (and all Milan Kundera 's work) as what it truly is: great, stirring literature that sheds new light on the eternal themes of human existence.
