              The five segments of Mircea Cartarescu's groundbreaking novel each focus on wildly separate narratives. Different in plot, style and tone, each tale nevertheless revolves around a shared core, a hidden centre. Taken as a whole, they serves as exploration of time and place, of com...munism and capitalism, of real and unreal. Insightful, strange and wildly imaginative, Nostalgia is one of the best Romanian novels of the twentieth century.
