Moscow Calling

Angus Roxburgh

Nov

The Gibraltar Garrison Library (Festival HQ)

Over the past 45 years, as foreign correspondent in Moscow for The Sunday Times and the BBC and as translator of Tolstoy, Angus Roxburgh has seen first-hand the crazy, exasperating beautiful world that is Russia. He was there for Glasnost and Perestroika, the Chechen War and the rise of Vladimir Putin. He met three successive Russian presidents, worked as a media consultant to Putin’s Kremlin and was wooed by the KGB, who decided he would make a lousy spy and expelled him. Based on his compelling memoirs Moscow Calling, he will talk about his Russia then and now in conversation.
