Kommunalka Child is a groundbreaking collection of funny, touching, embarrassing and absurd illustrated micro-memoirs that takes a unique look at life in the last decade of the Soviet Union through the eyes of a Latvian child.
Nine months after being conceived as a way to contribute to population growth, kommunalka child was harvested from a cabbage patch, like every other Soviet child. She grew up in a bilingual family in a communal home, searching for a place in the world as the Soviet way of life slowly collapsed in the face of the Western liberties and luxuries.
