Identity

January 11th, 2003

Milan Kundera, Translated By Linda Asher

On Amazon.com

Identity takes the reader into the minds of the lovers Chantal and Jean-Marc. Through their thoughts we see how little Chantal and Jean-Marc really know each other, how they fail to understand each other and communicate their feelings. Each incident of the story is told from twice, one from Chantal’s point of view and once from Jean-Marc’s point of view. The wide gulf between the two’s perception of the situation is an insight into the problems lack of communication causes in our relationships.
