In Memory of Memory.
This book by Maria Stepanova is an attempt to write a history of her own family, that instantly comes to a question of the very possibility to keep a memory of the past. It is an analysis of the family archive which turns into looking at the past ways of life from the present perspective. It is also a history of the main events of the 20th century which can exist in a memory of a modern person.
People and their traces disappear, things lose their purpose, and the evidence speaks the dead language - describing and eliminating various intermediaries between herself and the big history, the author of "In Memory of Memory" stays and leaves us face to face with our past.
This is the second and revised edition.
The book has been included in the short nominee list of the Big Book prize 2018 and also in the short nominee list of the Yasnaya Polyana Literary Award 2018.
The book is also a laureate of the NOS Literary Award 2018.
