The Wall is filled with personal insight of being an artist in the Solvet Union in 1948 and beyond in Prague. The book tells the tale of the writer’s experiences dealing with the repression of artistic expression. The author details a world in which personal expression and outside ideas are forbidden….a world in which only social realism is permitted. That is just the story.. The way Peter Sis did the illustrations to convey the story is profound in its original imagery from his imagination.
