COLD WAR-MOCKING adult education affair wherein TANYA FEIFER taught eager proto-Glasnostians the Cyrillic alphabet, basic phrasebook expressions and how to ask for a black bread sandwich. Had token pissy romantic photostory, “Goodbye Summer” (sorry – “Dosvidanya Lieta”). Made under tight restrictions, but still managed to have a go at Brezhnev et al on a visit to a Soviet “super” market, when Tanya commented, “The store was PARTICULARLY well-stocked when we arrived.” You bet it was.
