During the last decade, the „everyday(ness)“ has begun to occupy the attention of numerous writers and scholars in humanities as a „site of all possible signification“ (Blanchot), where tragic and sublime become visible (Gospodinov). Aleksandar Hemon, American writer of Bosnian origin, thanks to his double perspective of immigrant author, manages to render visible the anonymous everydayness, which usually remains outside of our automatic perception. The aim of this paper is to explain how Aleksandar Hemon, by using the double perspective, complex form and various postmodernist games, manages to bring closer the American capitalistic everydayness to the readers in former Yugoslav states, and simultaneously, how he manages to present the life in socialism to the readers in USA and in the other capitalist countries. Thanks to irony and innovative language, each of these „everydaynesses“ becomes visible also to those who actually lived it without noting its ridiculous, scary and absurd aspects.
