Reviews

"For anyone who's felt alienated from a mall, a suburb, a landscape, a culture, or our shared biosphere, this book offers homesickness as a powerful human desire, a mode of interpretation, a corrective to increased mobility, consumer capitalism, and utopian cosmopolitanism, and a hopeful sensibility that connects us with others-exactly what we need in our troubled times."-Jennifer Ladino, author of Reclaiming Nostalgia: Longing for Nature in American Literature"Ryan Hediger richly brings to life the feelings of homesickness that infuse cultural production amid the dislocations of capitalism, warfare, and the Anthropocene. His deeply researched and beautifully written book illuminates the experiences of weakness, mortality, and desire for home that have often been overlooked in the environmental humanities."-Teresa Shewry, author of Hope at Sea: Possible Ecologies in Oceanic Literature

"Ryan Hediger's Homesickness is an intriguing book that proposes its titular concept as a master category for reading twentieth- and twenty-first-century US art, particularly fiction and films."-ALH Online Review
