Nobody's Home Hardcover Sep 15 2008 By Dubravka Ugresic
A whole world seems to orbit within "Nobody's Home". It's a world that looks familiar but strange. Dubravka Ugresic takes us on her whirligig travels through Europe, and across to the US, offering her insightful and unique perspectives on literature, geopolitics, East and West. She wryly points out that while the Eastern bloc is gripped by Western modernization, the West is becoming increasingly Sovietized, with Internet banking, speed dating and automatic supermarket checkouts. And she doesn't stop there. She's got something to say about everything from flea markets and souvenirs to celebrity and slavery, in this kaleidoscopic tour de force.
