The Curtain: Milan Kundera

Publisher’s Weekly couldn’t give a more enthusiastic thumbs up for Kundera’s last book in a trilogy on the poetics of the novel:

“It’s not often that a work comes along that so perfectly distills an approach to art that it realigns the way an art form is understood.”

For early takes, check out this early review from a French prof. at UCLA.

Also, Chekhov’s Mistress has a short blurb on the New Yorker Oct. 9th edition that featured an excerpt from Kundera’s Curtain.

Nota Bene: the date of release from Harper Collins has been moved up to January 30st, 2007.
