📒Secondhand Time ✍ Svetlana Alexievich
✏Secondhand Time Book Summary : NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The magnum opus and latest work from Svetlana Alexievich, the 2015 winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature—a symphonic oral history about the disintegration of the Soviet Union and the emergence of a new Russia NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND PUBLISHERS WEEKLY • LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK PRIZE WINNER NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times • The Washington Post • The Boston Globe • The Wall Street Journal • NPR • Financial Times • Kirkus Reviews When the Swedish Academy awarded Svetlana Alexievich the Nobel Prize, it cited her for inventing “a new kind of literary genre,” describing her work as “a history of emotions—a history of the soul.” Alexievich’s distinctive documentary style, combining extended individual monologues with a collage of voices, records the stories of ordinary women and men who are rarely given the opportunity to speak, whose experiences are often lost in the official histories of the nation. In Secondhand Time, Alexievich chronicles the demise of communism. Everyday Russian citizens recount the past thirty years, showing us what life was like during the fall of the Soviet Union and what it’s like to live in the new Russia left in its wake. Through interviews spanning 1991 to 2012, Alexievich takes us behind the propaganda and contrived media accounts, giving us a panoramic portrait of contemporary Russia and Russians who still carry memories of oppression, terror, famine, massacres—but also of pride in their country, hope for the future, and a belief that everyone was working and fighting together to bring about a utopia. Here is an account of life in the aftermath of an idea so powerful it once dominated a third of the world. A magnificent tapestry of the sorrows and triumphs of the human spirit woven by a master, Secondhand Time tells the stories that together make up the true history of a nation. “Through the voices of those who confided in her,” The Nation writes, “Alexievich tells us about human nature, about our dreams, our choices, about good and evil—in a word, about ourselves.” Praise for Svetlana Alexievich and Secondhand Time “The nonfiction volume that has done the most to deepen the emotional understanding of Russia during and after the collapse of the Soviet Union of late is Svetlana Alexievich’s oral history Secondhand Time.”—David Remnick, The New Yorker “Like the greatest works of fiction, Secondhand Time is a comprehensive and unflinching exploration of the human condition. . . . In its scope and wisdom, Secondhand Time is comparable to War and Peace.”—The Wall Street Journal “Already hailed as a masterpiece across Europe, Secondhand Time is an intimate portrait of a country yearning for meaning after the sudden lurch from Communism to capitalism in the 1990s plunged it into existential crisis.”—The New York Times “This is the kind of history, otherwise almost unacknowledged by today’s dictatorships, that matters.”—The Christian Science Monitor “In this spellbinding book, Svetlana Alexievich orchestrates a rich symphony of Russian voices telling their stories of love and death, joy and sorrow, as they try to make sense of the twentieth century.”—J. M. Coetzee

✏Second Hand Out Book Summary : All his life, Dr. Sherman Hinkley was governed by one primary aspiration: to work as an Agent for E.W. Harper's ClockWorks Time Travel Agency. A career with the Agency would ensure Sherman's status as a bona fide contemporary hero and legendary scholar. He sought not only the glamour that inevitably derived from fame, but also the pride of knowing that after a series of failed endeavors, he'd at last arrived. Yet, Sherman quickly learns that even with the world famous Agency, books should never be judged by their cover alone and that sometimes the darkness of truth is far more ominous than the brilliance of deceit. Now, Sherman must re-evaluate his life, his career, and his future, while trying desperately to repair the world's past. What does it mean to be a hero? Sherman Hinkley couldn't have been further from the truth.
📒The Second Hand ✍ Nilesh Srivastava
✏The Second Hand Book Summary : Mukund's father, restricted to a hospital bed by paralysis, asks his son for a favour. Mukund is to go to his hometown, Jalsaur â€“ a small isolated North Indian town â€“ to rescue his cousin, Uday from the mess he has got into with the police for assaulting a local college principal, Mr Siddiqui. Mukund takes up the task despite his past differences with Uday, and undertakes the journey to Jalsaur after twelve years. What he thought would be a two-day job, starts taking a life of its own, as he comes face-to-face with a town gradually getting politicised, and Uday standing bang in the middle of the process. He can no longer understand his cousin and the town that holds his childhood memories. For help, he just has one person to lean on â€“ Siddiqui's daughter and his childhood friend, Sara. Mukund soon begins to realise that the real reasons for his cousin's behaviour may not lie in Jalsaur, but in the tortured past of his family as it prospered and decayed over three generations. Some of the reasons point accusingly to his father, who left the town ages ago but never got around to severing his roots. Even before Mukund can tie the loose threads and take charge, the town is swept away by the strong headwinds of an event far away â€“ the fall of the Babri Masjid and all the chaos that followsâ€¦
