Our Next Event
CANCELLED Author, Alexander Boot talks about his new book, How the Future Worked Russia through the eyes of a young non-person
Wednesday 12 March 2014
“A brilliant evocation of life in the Soviet Union...which will tell you more about Russia than a hundred academic volumes.” Theodore Dalrymple
“So vivid a portrayal of a Soviet childhood and youth we could almost be there. Entertaining and informative.” Fay Weldon
“A gripping, intelligent and masterly narrative...Boot is a superb writer.” Vitaly Vitaliev
In 1973, aged 25, Alexander Boot was told to leave the USSR or he would be sent to Siberia, so he packed his bags for a new life in the West. In this book, through a series of vivid anecdotes, he recounts his early life in Russia as a ne-nash, a non-person, someone who would not conform to the warped principles of Soviet socialism.
About Alex Boot After a short period in Italy following his forced departure from Russia Alexander Boot settled in the USA where he worked in advertising. He moved with his wife Penelope to the UK in 1988 and is now a blogger for The Daily Mail and author of his own blog www.alexanderboot.com .
Tickets are £3 and will be deductible from the price of the book (£12.99).
