In February 1917, in the midst of a bloody war, Russia was an autocratic monarchy. Nine months later, it was the first socialist state in world history. How did this remarkable transformation take place? Award-winning author China Miéville has long been inspired by the ideals of the Russian Revolution and now, on the centenary of the revolution, he provides his own distinctive take on this historic moment. «October» is the story of the extraordinary months between two massive upheavals and the forces and individuals who made them happen—from the urban centers to the remote villages of this sprawling empire. In conversation with The Evergrey editor and cofounder Monica Guzman, Miéville describes the Russian Revolution as a breathtaking story, as well as a political event of profound and ongoing consequence.
