Sometimes the smallest books, have the most to say. I've collected a few books which tell the tale of the Soviet Union through stunning photographs, and this book moves to the top of that list. The photos might be small in size, but the stories within each one are huge. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0974283673, Hardcover)

The story of Communism is the story of the twentieth century. For many, the Soviet Union existed, like their childhood, as a fairy tale where many of the realities of life were hidden from plain view. When the Berlin Wall finally fell, so too did the illusion of that utopia. Wonderland is a photographic exploration that portrays both the reality beneath the veneer of a utopian USSR and the affirmation of hope that should never be abandoned. And like all fairy tales try to teach us: the hard lessons of self-reliance.

Jason Eskenazi was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Taylor Prize.
