The Unbearable Lightness of Being


by Milan Kundera

The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 4, Chapter 9 Summary

  • One day a boy of about sixteen starts hitting on Tereza at the bar.
  • She cards him when he asks for a drink, and he gets belligerent. She realizes that he is already drunk and berates him for it. He drunkenly shouts that he loves her and then leaves.
  • After, a bald-headed man tells Tereza that she shouldn't serve underage drinkers like that.
  • She tries to explain, but he keeps harassing her. A tall man comes to her defense, and she thanks him.
