[Translated by Linda Asher][Read by Richmond Hoxie] Set in modern-day Paris, The Festival of Insignificance follows four friends who run into each other in the Luxembourg Gardens, attend parties, and conduct a long-running exchange on sex, desire, history, art, and even the meaning of human existence. Kundera pokes fun at our sense of self-importance, and one of the friends, Ramon, proposes that we rejoice in the freedom of recognizing our own insignificance. What a liberating thought! The Festival of Insignificance takes up all the themes that have informed this great writer's fiction, embracing the comic and laughing at a culture that has lost what is most vital to life: that necessary and seemingly elusive sense of humor.
