REVIEWS

"Novel Nostalgias presents an expertly researched selection of US authors who variously absorb and explode nostalgia’s peculiar power. At the same time, it recovers the ambivalence with which both novelists and readers assess the dizzying array of nostalgic antagonisms shaping our political conversations. For these reasons alone, Funchion’s contribution to our intellectual history of the nineteenth century cannot be ignored."
