Author: Mark Harrison
ISBN: 978-0-8179-1914-6

This collection of stories tells what day-to-day life was like for people under the regime of the Soviet police state. Drawing on events from the 1930s through the 1970s, the book shows how, by accident or design, people became entangled in the workings of Soviet rule. These tales, based on historical records, shine a light on the many tragic, funny, and bizarre aspects of Soviet life.
