The deck appears to be stacked against poor Jonas Finkal, who's just trying to make a living and hang with his girl.
Pinkel, his friend and employer, is trafficking in illegal books - translating texts banned by the ruling communist regime. And the secret police have made Jonas their informant against his will.
Tatiana, his girlfriend, is a member of an underground student group committed to reading said books. And her father is a high-ranking member of the Communist Party who will be disgraced if it's revealed that his daughter is dating a Jew.
The seeds planted in the previous volume of A JEW COMMUNIST PRAGUE grow to fruition in REBELLION, the third part in Vittorio Giardino's landmark historical epic.
Find out why critics around the world have hailed A JEW IN COMMUNIST PRAGUE as one of the great literary works produced by the comics medium. Or just take it from me - this is one damn good book.
