One of Kundera’s earliest novels, Farewell Waltz is loosely based on Shakespeare’s farcical comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream In this dark farce of a novel, set in an old-fashioned Central European spa town, eight characters are swept up in an accelerating dance. Perhaps the most brilliantly plotted and entertaining of Milan Kundera's novels, Farewell Waltz poses the most serious questions with a blasphemous lightness that makes us see that the modern world has deprived us even of the right to tragedy. This new translation, prepared by the novelist himself, offers an opportunity for the rediscovery of one of the very best of a great writer's works.
