Description - Nostalgia by Mircea Cartarescu
A mesmerizing novel about the magical and gritty world of Bucharest in the 1980s by a celebrated Eastern European writer
'Gripping, impassioned, unexpected' Los Angeles Times
A dreamlike novel of memory and magic, Nostalgia turns the dark world of Communist Bucharest into a place of strange enchantments. Here a man plays increasingly death-defying games of Russian Roulette, a child messiah works his magic in the tenements, a young man explores gender boundaries, a woman relives her youth and an architect becomes obsessed with the sound of his new car horn - with unexpected consequences. Blending reality and symbolism, time and myth, this is a cult masterwork from Romania's most celebrated writer.
