Although nobody was killed and the official Communist-run media presented the story as the quiet, justified end to the whims of student radicals, clandestine videotapes and accounts of the incident blanketed the country. By the next day, Praguers began organizing their outrage.

In The Unbearable Lightness of Being, the anguish over escaping the Sovietoccupied Prague he loves tears the libidinous protagonist Dr. Tomáš in the same way the love for his wife and the lust for his lover does.

Kundera’s biting satire of Stalinist-style purges in the 1950s, The Joke, however, is regarded by Czech critics as his best work. Arnošt Lustig, a survivor of the Naziera Terezín concentration camp and author of many works, including Street of Lost Brothers, shared the 1991 Publishers Weekly Award for best literary work with John Updike and Norman Mailer.
