Example text

Throughout the period of exile and return, Aksyonov writes travelogues, whether to challenge the opposition of cultural belonging and dislocation, to redefine the location of the reader vis-à-vis the author, or to support, then eventually challenge, postmodern claims to inclusivity. The travelogue In Search of Melancholy Baby rhetorically structures his exile, finding commonality, rather than opposition, between aesthetic tropes of travel and exile. A transitional period distinguished by the numerous short works produced during his early regime of travel between Russia and the West reveals transnational figures ungrounded in either sustained narratives or place.

In 1963 he traveled to Argentina and visited Japan a second time. These trips resulted in the travelogues “Japanese Jottings” (“Iaponskie zametki,” 1964) and “Under the Sky of Sultry Argentina” (“Pod nebom znoinoi Argentiny,” 1966). In the period from 1965 to 1967, he traveled to Austria, Bulgaria, England, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, and Yugoslavia. 18 His account of his trip to the United States, titled Around the Clock NonStop (Kruglye sutki non-stop, 1976), would be followed by a second American travelogue written in exile, In Search of Melancholy Baby (V poiskakh grustnogo bebi, 1987), in which he narrates the process by which he was deprived of his Soviet citizenship and made his home in Washington, DC.

They identify the reader as “coauthor” and invite participation in collaborative creative performances that have real-world applications, such as contributing to the building of one’s “home” inside and outside the text, and participating in projects that increase the engagement and standing of Russian culture in the global sphere. His novels The New Sweet Style (1997) and Caesarean Illumination (2002) evince the social agenda at their center, confronting not only isolationist nationalist ideologies but figures such as Brennan’s diasporic “third-world celebrity” writer and opportunistic new Russian businessmen—global entrepreneurs who exploit the local for their own gain—to promote social and cultural values that situate Russian culture constructively within the processes of cultural globalization.
