Event description

Description

Epic in scope and ambition, Yuri Slezkine’s The House of Government tells the true story of the residents of an enormous Moscow apartment building where top Communist officials and their families lived before they were destroyed in Stalin’s purges. Drawing on letters, diaries and interviews to give a vivid account of the personal and public lives of Bolshevik true believers, the book begins with their conversion to Communism and ends with their children’s loss of faith and the fall of the Soviet Union.

Yuri Slezkine will be at the Bookshop to discuss this monumental new work with writer and journalist Owen Hatherley.
