              Growing up in a working-class neighbourhood in Copenhagen, Tove feels that her childhood is made for a completely different girl. As 'long, mysterious words begin to crawl across my soul', she comes to understand that she has a vocation that will define her life. Her path seems a...ssured, but she has no idea of the struggles ahead - love affairs, wanted and unwanted pregnancies, artistic failure and destructive addiction. As the years go by, the central tension of Tove's life comes into painful focus: the terrible lure of dependency, in all its forms, and the possibility of living freely and fearlessly - as an artist on her own terms.

              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.
