In his first novel, The Joke (1967), he gave a satirical account of the nature of totalitarianism in the Communist era. Kundera was quick to criticize the Soviet invasion in 1968. This led to his blacklisting in Czechoslavakia and his works being banned there. His books were banned until the downfall of the regime in the Velvet Revolution of 1989.
Kundera's best-known work is The Unbearable Lightness of Being.
