Future of Nostalgia by Svetlana Boym
Book DescriptionCombining personal memoir, philosophical essay, and historical analysis, Svetlana Boym explores the spaces of collective nostalgia that connect national biography and personal self-fashioning in the twenty-first century. She guides us through the ruins and construction sites of post-communist cities-St. Petersburg, Moscow, Berlin, and Prague-and the imagined homelands of exiles-Benjamin, Nabokov, Mandelstahm, and Brodsky. From Jurassic Park to the Totalitarian Sculpture Garden, Boym unravels the threads of this global epidemic of longing and its antidotes.

Alternating analysis with personal accounts of Russian life, this text on the "real Russia" conveys the foreignness of the nation and examines peculiar conceptions of private life and common good, of "culture" and "trash", of sincerity and banality.
