Book Description :

'A cult figure.' Guardian 'A dark and brilliant achievement.' Ian McEwan 'Shamelessly clever ... Exhilaratingly subversive and funny.' Independent 'A modern classic ... As relevant now as when it was first published. ' John Banville A young woman is in love with a successful surgeon - a man torn between his love for her and his incorrigible womanising. His mistress, a free-spirited artist, lives her life as a series of betrayals - while her other lover stands to lose everything because of his noble qualities. In a world where lives are shaped by irrevocable choices and fortuitous events, and everything occurs but once, existence seems to lose its substance and weight - and we feel 'the unbearable lightness of being'. A masterpiece by one of the world's truly great writers, Milan Kundera's The Unbearable Lightness of Being encompasses passion and philosophy, infidelity and ideas, the Prague Spring and modern America, political acts and private desires, comedy and tragedy - and illuminates all aspects of human existence. What readers are saying: 'Some books change your mind, some change your heart, the very best change your whole world ... A mighty piece of work, that will shape your life forever.' 'One of the best books I've ever read ... A book about love and life, full of surprises. Beautiful.' 'This book is going to change your life ... It definitely leaves you with a hangover after you're done reading.' 'A must read - loved it, such beautiful observations on life, love and sexuality.' 'Kundera writes about love as if in a trance so the beauty of it is enchanting and dreamy ... Will stay with you forever.' 'A beautiful novel that helps you understand life better ... Loved it.' 'One of those rare novels full of depth and insight into the human condition ... Got me reading Camus and Sartre.' 'One of the best books I have ever read ... An intellectual love story if ever there was one.'

Book Description :

"By reading Kundera's novel and its message through a Derridean lens, we can see that they are linked in their theories about language. Through his approach to language and the history of it, Jacques Derrida coined the terms "deconstruction" and "différance." The two are rooted in presenting the fallacies of ascribing neat definitions to words and reading words out of context. A closer analysis of the emotions and actions of these four characters through Derrida's work can show us how Kundera is encouraging readers to re-evaluate the value systems we place on language. To begin the discussion of The Unbearable Lightness of Being , I want to analyze how deconstruction functions in the novel: différance; the deconstruction of binaries (and the paradoxes in value systems placed on binaries); and, finally, polysemy and understanding." -- Page 1

Book Description :

I don't consider myself the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I'm certainly not a spoon. I think about things. I put human nature under a microscope. Sometimes to my own peril. And I write about it. And politics, science, cosmology, relationships, sex, coffee, my angst, my weirdness, my cats & anything else that pops or chaps. But I think you will often find me quite humorous. Especially if you like sarcasm.Unless you're just blithely cruising through life, you'll notice there's a lot going on in this macrocosm of existence. This means there's a lot going on the microcosm of my brain. Not that there's anything "micro" about my brain. Anyway-here is a collection in which I share my thoughts, ruminations, suggestions, complaints and epiphanies where these "cosms" are concerned. Wear a helmet.

Book Description :

The Unbearable Lightness of Being a Prawn Cracker - hilarious restaurant reviews by Booker nominee Will Self 'Most food writing and restaurant criticism is concerned with the ideal, with how by cooking this, or dining there, you can somehow ingurgitate a new - or at any rate improved - social, aesthetic and even spiritual persona. I aimed to turn this proposition on its head, and instead of commenting on where and what people would ideally like to eat I would consider where and what they actually did: the ready meals, buffet snacks and - most importantly - fast food that millions of Britons chomp upon in the go-round of their often hurried and dyspeptic lives.' In this selection from his wickedly funny New Statesman Real Meals column, Will Self reviews the chains where most of us go to eat (KFC, Greggs, Yo! Sushi, Pizza Express and their like), delves into the ubiquitous Thai meal and Chicken Tikka Masala, and experiences hotel breakfasts, frozen TV dinners and airline food on our behalf. These are restaurant reviews of the kind you've never read before. Will Self is the author of nine novels including Cock and Bull; My Idea of Fun; Great Apes; How the Dead Live; Dorian, an Imitation; The Book of Dave; The Butt; Walking to Hollywood and Umbrella, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. He has written five collections of shorter fiction and three novellas: The Quantity Theory of Insanity; Grey Area; License to Hug; The Sweet Smell of Psychosis; Design Faults in the Volvo 760 Turbo; Tough, Tough Toys for Tough, Tough Boys; Dr. Mukti and Other Tales of Woe and Liver: A Fictional Organ with a Surface Anatomy of Four Lobes. Self has also compiled a number of nonfiction works, including The Undivided Self: Selected Stories; Junk Mail; Perfidious Man; Sore Sites; Feeding Frenzy; Psychogeography; Psycho Too and The Unbearable Lightness of Being a Prawn Cracker.

Book Description :

"Although the discussion of "kitsch" has traditionally been confined to the visual arts, this thesis extends it to all of human experience: expression, objects, thoughts, events, and memory. By aligning kitsch with Jean Baudrillard's "hyperreality," it argues that everything is kitsch. Kitsch is a process of reduction and transformation--it precedes any experience, denying whatever is incompatible with itself ("shit") by changing it into kitsch. Kitsch produces a set of images, concepts, and words it deems representative of humanity's accumulated experience to which any response is then always confined. So regardless of what something is inherently, persons cannot help but respond as if it were kitsch. The inescapability of kitsch is examined through Sabina of Milan Kundera's The Unbearable Lightness of Being and Bee of Imre Kertesz's Liquidation. Kitsch is both that which renders the real nonexistant and the response to a world in which the real no longer exists" --Abstract.

Book Description :

We are incredible human beings living in an incredible world. Sometimes, though, we feel anything but incredible and life feels heavy. So what can we do to remain lighthearted (have a heart radiating with light) when life feels heavy? Or is it even possible in this day-and-age to be lighthearted and to maintain happiness and peace? The Incredible Lightness of Being will remind you of truths that you already know but have perhaps forgotten due to the worries and concerns of life. You have ancient knowledge residing in you, just waiting to resurface. As you read this book, that knowledge will well up inside of you and spill over into your life. The result will be lightheartedness, happiness, and peace. When reading The Incredible Lightness of Being, you will be reminded to accept God's unconditional love, love yourself, trust in and rely on God's sovereignty, believe that God only wants good for you, to be kind, and to be happy. In essence, you will be reminded to be yourself, who is an incredible being of lightness.
