The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain

This graphic memoir by Peter Sis follows the author through his childhood and teenage years in what is now the Czech Republic. It's been long enough since the fall of the Berlin Wall, now, that it's easy to forget how very different life was for those on the other side. Sis's artwork leaves a little to be desired, but the story he tells of everyday life under Soviet rule is thoroughly engrossing.
