Undercurrent of my mind

There has to be a German word that describes the feeling

of starting a fall semester before a sabbatical in the spring.

Absent that, this will work:

Kyungso Park, The Undercurrent Of My Mind; Jukpa Kim's Gayageum Sanjo / 박경소 가야금 산조 ; 김죽파류

ON some of the anti-neoliberal messages in recent dystopian fiction.

Of the works discussed here, I can vouch for Ann Leckie's books, which I really enjoyed and found very original.

And Snowpiercer, despite initially seeming to be the dumbest movie premise of all time, was a surprisingly engaging critique of inequality and socio-economic structure.
