China Miéville In Conversation at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 4 May 2017, from £7 - Book now

Award-winning The City & The City writer China Miéville has been interested in the ideals of the Russian Revolution for some time and his new book October: The Story of the Russian Revolution (Verso) explores this, taking us back to the year that turned the world upside down.

In February 1917, in the midst of a bloody war, Russia was still an autocratic monarchy: nine months later, it became the first socialist state in world history. Now, on the centenary of the Russian Revolution, Miéville provides his take on the history of a political event of profound and ongoing consequence. How did this unimaginable transformation take place? How was a ravaged and backward country, swept up in a desperately unpopular war, rocked by not one but two revolutions?

October: The Story of the Russian Revolution tells the story of the extraordinary months between those upheavals, in February and October, and, in this talk with HOME Artistic Director Sarah Perks, Miéville reveals the Russian Revolution as a breathtaking story in its passion and drama and strangeness for newcomers and old radicals alike.
