"A quirky collection of imagery that depicts everyday life in the former Soviet Union . . . This is a perfect book for vintage enthusiasts and anyone with a soft spot for Soviet kitsch. " --Publishers Weekly"The images get at Soviet gaiety, which Stalin called "the most outstanding feature of the Soviet Union"-a perverse statement given the source-as well as at the humor that can only be gained by looking backward in time. " --Air Mail
