This tour de farce of satire, parody and general comic mayhem chronicles the exploits of an American in Central and Eastern Europe when humanity first awoke from the deep freeze of communism. The Transition, as we called it, was a magical time when everyday life was itself an ongoing satire of the human condition. Block-headed commie idiocy is hilarious, provided you are no longer living under it. Even more astounding was the patronising and often equally block-headed idiocy of the NGO and expat communities. Join the fray! You won't regret it.
