Milan Kundera is a master of graceful illusion and illuminating surprise. In one of these stories a young man and his girlfriend pretend that she is a stranger he picked up on the road - only to become strangers to each other in reality as their game proceeds. In another a teacher fakes piety in order to seduce a devout girl, then jilts her and yearns for God. In yet another girls wait in bars, on beaches, and on station platforms for the same lover, a middle-aged Don Juan who has gone home to his wife. Games, fantasies, and schemes abound in all the stories, while different characters react in varying ways to the sudden release of erotic impulses.

    " I have mixed feelings.. I liked that every story had its profound moral, a psichological basis. In spite of this, this book didn't keep me 24/7 awake just to read it. It was a real pleasure, though "

    " The Hitchhiker is one of my favorite stories ever and this is my favorite collection of stories. Kundera is one of the best. "
