I recently started reading Charm School, by Nelson DeMille, a book I always avoided because it didn't contain the infamous John Corey. It was a little hard to get into, but I'm glad I remained patient because it takes a more intimate look at communism. When I think communism, I think of the time spent on Google Maps, observing how every building is similar in size. I think of Zangief, from Street Fighter II, brawling in an alley. I think of accents, and how my friend, Mariusz, being from Poland, had a similar, latent accent. I think of suffocation, security.
