Snallygaster tickets went on sale yesterday. Pretty sure it sells out every year.

Kundera was super trendy in the 1980s and then just sort of faded away.

Well he only wrote one book after the year 2000...so once you read him, you were sort of done. I guess maybe what you mean is he didn't really have staying power in the literary world.

He wasnít like a Rushdie, Barnes, McEwan churning out great books every 2-3 years. Once all his stuff got translated into English and the West caught up he was sort of done. At least thatís my impression. Most of his stuff is before the fall of the iron curtain. He has no ambition.

On a personal level I found his stuff kind of fluffy.
