In this episode, writer and historian Simon Sebag Montefiore talks about his book «The Romanovs: 1613-1918», which tells the often brutal, bloody and erotic story of the Tsar dynasty which ruled Russia for 300 years. Leading the conversation is Erika Fatland, herself an acclaimed author of several non-fiction books from Russian-controlled areas, among these Englebyen. Historier fra Beslan (“The City of Angels. Stories from Beslan”) and Sovjetistan. The conversation took place at the House of Literature on March 3rd 2017.
