George Orwell in the Soviet Union Talk Led by Author and Journalist, Vitali Vitaliev

Tuesday 13 September 2011

Vitali Vitaliev, dubbed the Soviet Union’s first investigative reporter, who now lives in Letchworth will discuss how the books and ideas of Orwell, although banned in the Soviet Union, were widely admired and circulated in secret.

Vitali Vitaliev was born in Kharkiv, Ukraine.  He first made a name for himself in the Soviet Union, writing satirical journalism in Krokodil and other publications, exposing the activities of organized crime and corruption in the collapsing country.  Finally he defected in 1990 after persecution by the KGB.  He has appeared regularly on TV and radio in the UK (Have I Got News For You, Saturday Night Clive, After Dark, Start the Week), was a writer/researcher for QI. He is the author of eleven books, including cult classics such as Dreams on Hitler's Couch and Border's Up and more recently, Passport to Enclavia and Life as a Literary Device
