China Miéville – October: The Story of the Russian Revolution

The renowned fantasy and science fiction writer China Miéville talks about the Russian revolution, both as a political event of profound and ongoing consequence and as a breathtaking story.  It is the story of the extraordinary months between February and October 1917, of the forces and individuals who helped define it, of their intrigues, and catastrophes. Miéville ranges from familiar names like Lenin and Trotsky to their opponents Kornilov and Kerensky; from the squabbles of urban activists to the remotest villages of a sprawling empire. China Miéville is the multi-award-winning author of many works of fiction and non-fiction. His fiction includes _The City & the City_, _Embassytown_ and _This Census-Taker_, and has won the Hugo, World Fantasy and Arthur C. Clarke awards; his non-fiction includes the photo-illustrated essay _London’s Overthrow_.  In partnership with Verso Liberty Lecture, in association with the University of Leeds
