2 min read

Newbery Honor-winning author/illustrator Eugene Yelchin presents his book THE GENIUS UNDER THE TABLE: GROWING UP BEHIND THE IRON CURTAIN. Click here to purchase THE GENIUS UNDER THE TABLE: https://www.politics-prose.com/book/9781536215526

Yevgeny is sharing a tiny apartment with his Baryshnikov-obsessed mother, poetry-loving father, continually outraged grandmother, and safely talented brother. Not to mention the KGB spy living next door. How will Yevgeny ever fulfill his parents’ dream that he become a national hero when he doesn’t even have his own room? The Genius Under the Table: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain is a hilarious and poignant memoir presenting a realistic view of being raised and coming of age in the USSR. Eugene Yelchin tackles a tough topic with equal parts charm and tenderness, building upon the narrative with pen and ink illustrations.

Eugene Yelchin received a Newbery Honor for his novel Breaking Stalin’s Nose. He is the co-author and illustrator of the 2018 National Book Award Finalist The Assassination of Brangwain Spurge, co-written with M. T. Anderson.
