The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 2, Chapter 24 Summary

  • Tereza took her photographs with her to Switzerland, looking to get them published.
  • The editor was kind but refused them on the grounds that they were out of date. Tereza was still in his office when a female employee dropped off an article on nudist beaches.
  • The editor nearly apologized to Tereza for publishing something so trivial (nude beaches) and refusing her serious photos.
  • But Tereza says, without explanation, that the nude beach photos are the same as her photos of the tanks invading Prague.
  • The editor doesn't understand what she means.
  • Tereza thinks about her mother walking around naked when she was a little girl, and how she used to try to close the curtains to their apartment to hide her.
