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.
