Description

Jacques and His Master is a delightfully witty and entertaining ‘variation’ on Diderot’s novel Jacques le Fataliste, written in the aftermath of the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia. When the ‘heavy Russian irrationality’ fell on Czechoslovakia, Milan Kundera explains he felt drawn to the spirit of the eighteenth century, epitomized for him in the humour and fantasy of Jacques le Fataliste.
