His efforts risked distorting the memory of the war in a way that would have dishonored the experience of the people of San Pietro Infine--something like the restorative nostalgia that Boym contrasted to the reflective version.
The novel implicitly, but quite skillfully, anticipates Boym's differentiation between two kinds of nostalgia: whereas "restorative nostalgia," according to Boym, stresses the nostos (the homecoming) and is the core of most reactionary politics, "reflective nostalgia thrives in algos, the longing itself, and delays the homecoming-wistfully, ironically, desperately" (Boym XVIII).
