Ilf and Petrov’s American Road Trip

In 1935, well into the era of Soviet Communism, Russian satirical writers Ilya Ilf and Evgeny Petrov came to the US as special correspondents for Pravda. They drove cross-country and back on a two-month trip, recording their impressions of American life with text and photographs.
