A work of literary geography, the book draws together an unusual grouping of texts from different national canons, comparing how fictional settings transmute European placelessness into narrative. In Central and Eastern Europe, where empire and nation have frequently been in conflict, the border condition is not anomalous but commonplace. The book concentrates on border transformations in interwar narratives, and also considers more recent responses to the post-Cold War map.
