The Unbearable Lightness of Being Part 6, Chapter 7 Summary

  • Ten years later, Sabina is living in America.
  • An American friend of hers, a Senator, takes her on a day trip with his children. As they watch his children running around on a grassy lawn, he says that the image of them playing is what he calls happiness.
  • What he is smiling at, though, is an understanding of Sabina's escape from Communist Europe.
  • Sabina knows, however, that his smile is the same smile as that of the Communist statesmen in Prague looking down at the parades on the street.
