Stalin Ate My Homework The Sayles might not have been the only Jewish atheist communist family in Liverpool, but Alexei knew from an early age that they were one of the more eccentric. Born on the day egg rationing came to an end, Alexei was the only child of Joe, an affable trade unionist who led the family on railway expeditions across eastern Europe, and Molly, a hot-tempered red-head who terrified teachers and insisted Alexei see the Red Army Choir instead of the Beatles.
Perceptive and hilarious, this is a portrait of a family, a city, a country and a continent going through enormous changes. Buy now! Find your closest one.
Sayle joined the Young Communist League, more or less, as he puts it, "joining the family business". But he quickly found a way to kick out by becoming a Maoist - out-Stalinising his now "wishy-washy" parents.

Sayle looks back on most of what he was taught politically as nonsense, although there is a really nice moment when he describes finally getting that Marx was actually right about the historical process. Much of the book is funny and at no time nasty about his unconventional parents.
Of course, Sayle can and does easily make fun of the politics he grew up with, at times tossing chunks of baby out with the bathwater, in my opinion. Nevertheless, it's a fun read written by a very funny man. Skip to main content.
