More than a feeling

I'm reading the novel You Don't Love Me Yet by Jonathan Lethem, and I ran across a passage that touches on the amorphous feeling some expatriates have about Flint.

"What is your complaint, sir?"

"Same as always," said the complainer. "Nostalgia, except it's not just regular nostalgia. More like nostalgia vu. Longing for longing instead of the thing in question."
