238pp. Author's drawings. SIGNED and inscribed by author on tp. "Cien A. Berzinai Pateiciba par lielo darbu Helena Celmina" Includes publisher's promo. Celmina served from 1962 to 1966 in a Soviet labor camp for intent to disseminate anti-Soviet material - expelled from the USSR, she has now brought the personal tale of her prison experience to the Western reader. The episodes and people she describes vividly depict the life of a woman prisoner during that period and reveal much of the system and the prison subculture. As a Latvian, she holds some contempt generally for the Russians, but her account of hardship is almost understated
