Product Details


“Insightful… This book not only helps to illuminate the political and social problems facing much of Eastern Europe, but also sheds new light on the daily life of its residents, their emotional habits, fears and dreams.” —The New York Times

“Drakulic is a perceptive and amusing social critic, with a wonderful eye for detail.” —The Washington Post

“Profound and often bitingly funny… you’ll never think about capitalism, modern history, or your perfect, white, American teeth in the same way again.” —Elle
