"Milan Kundera had already toyed with the idea of dreams coming into the realm of the real and the other way around (an idea that still makes us wonder). In "Identity" Kundera takes this to an extreme by analysing the life of a couple with certain disparities (age, social status, aspirations); by focusing on the male character the writer can develop the idea of identity not being a fixed entity far from change. In my opinion, the immigrant writer problematizes the concept in quite an original way, for (as in most of Kundera's stories) the male character and the female one offer the reader an integral perspective.
Another profound reflection, hotbed of more ideas to any reader, and so, one of the subtlest books by Kundera" - Amazon Reviewer

Sometimes - perhaps only for an instant - we fail to recognise a companion; for a moment their identity ceases to exist, and thus we come to doubt our own. The effect is at its most acute in a couple where our existence is given meaning by our perception of a lover, and theirs of us.

With his astonishing skill at building on and out from the significant moment, Kundera has placed such a situation and the resulting wave of panic at the core of the novel. In a narrative as intense as it is brief, a moment of confusion sets in motion a complex chain of events which forces the reader to cross and recross the divide between fantasy and reality. Profound, sad and disquieting but above all a love story, Identity provides further proof of Kundera's astonishing gifts as a novelist.
