Secondhand Time: The Last of the Soviets
Dear Book Lovers, After a short break, I am happy to announce the following activity. We will read Secondhand Time: The Last of the Soviets by Svetlana Alexievich winner of the Nobel Prize of Literature Protected content . Alexievich narrates in this book the collapse of the USSR, charting the decline of Soviet culture and speculating on what will rise from the ashes of Communism.
As in all her books, Alexievich gives voice to women and men whose stories are lost in the official narratives of nation-states, creating a powerful alternative history from the personal and private stories of individuals.
I am looking foward to seeing you there.
