The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera: Set mostly during the Russian invasion of Prague in the late 1960s, the novel focuses on the love lives of four Czech intellectuals as they struggle with relationships, sex, politics, and the military occupation of their country. Against a philosophical backdrop of lightness and heaviness, all four characters struggle to achieve a balance between the two opposing forces in their lives. - Publisher
