"Life is Elsewhere" seems even more pertinent in today's urbanizing world, where the popular culture is dominated by the so-called hipster movement and the children of the old bourgeois choose to pretend they are in dare financial situations. We are all Jaromil in the sense that we all hope to get the public's attention and make it big through some rare talent that we have been blessed with by the providence. However, most of us live our life in a manner that would make the statement 'life is elsewhere' a true one.

Travelin Kundera has been accused of reporting a political activist to the police under communism. I wonder if that's one reason he makes individualists and idealogues slightly ridiculous.
