St Petersburg: Three Centuries of Murderous Desire

Hay Festival 2018, 

In this lavishly illustrated talk, Miles presents his latest book, St Petersburg –Three Centuries of Murderous Desire, an epic tale of massacre, madness and murder played out against the splendour of a city risen from the frozen marshlands on the western edge of Russia – a city created to be a daring new capital of an old country.
