Staff Reviews


Europe in Sepia is a brilliant collection of essays from one of the most under-appreciated members of the human race, Dubravka Ugreši?. From the unfortunate rise of black stretch pants to European immigration, Croatian nationalism to the value of a writer, Ugreši? tackles all with deft humor and courageous insight.  -Erin's Pick, 2/12/14

Description


Dubbed "the fantasy cultural studies professor you never had" by Ruth Franklin, Ugresic has one finger on the pulse of an exhausted Europe, another in the wounds of postindustrial America. From pieces on Zuccotti Park to ones on nostalgia and Dutch housing, she trawls the fallout of political failure and the detritus of popular culture, mining each for revelation.
