A Jew in Communist Prague:
Adolescence (vol. 2)

Credits: Written and Illustrated by Vittorio Giardino
Publisher: NBM

Commentary

Times have certainly been better for young Jonas Finkel. His father in jail, his mother destitute, Jonas has been barred from attending school by the communist regime that has stormed post-World War Eastern Europe. In Prague, the best Jonas can hope for is to scrape by and avoid the sinister eye of the communist security agents...

ADOLESCENCE is the second book in Vittorio Giardino's highly acclaimed historical drama, A JEW IN COMMUNIST PRAGUE. Jonas, now a teenager, gets his education not from a classroom, but the construction yards. When salvation comes, it's in the form of an old family friend who offers him a job as a bookstore clerk.

But in a world where the written word is greatly feared and censored, is old Pinkel really running a legit bookstore, or is there something hiding behind his innocent facade? That's what the Soviet secret police would like to know and Jonas attracts the very attention he's hoping to avoid.

Oh, and Jonas discovers girls, so you know he's in for a world of trouble...!
