Publisher's Summary

Milan Kundera's sixth novel springs from a casual gesture of a woman to her swimming instructor, a gesture that creates a character in the mind of a writer named Kundera. Like Flaubert's Emma or Tolstoy's Anna, Kundera's Agnes becomes an object of fascination, of indefinable longing. From that character springs a novel, a gesture of the imagination that both embodies and articulates Milan Kundera's supreme mastery of the novel and its purpose: to explore thoroughly the great themes of existence.

"Immortality" is so rejuvenating to the reading experience, pulling Goethe and Hemingway from beyond, effortlessly using literary magic devices in pleasing ways. It should leave its mark on the way you view a novel. One cannot describe the plot/theme without spoiling the trip.
