About the Author

A cultural historian, Jonathan Miles graduated with a first from University College, London and received his doctorate from Jesus College, Oxford. Early books include studies of David Jones. His Wreck of the Medusa - currently under option for a full-length motion picture - is a voyage through the artistic, political and moral clashes of Restoration France. The New York Times called it 'entrallingly recounted … the narrative brilliantly meted out'. His Nine Lives of Otto Katz - the tale of a flamboyant Soviet intriguer and spy - was hailed by the Los Angeles Times 'as unique among accounts of that world'. The press has reacted to St. Petersburg - Three Centuries of Murderous Desire with unbounded enthusiasm: 'a brilliant history' - The Observer; 'extraordinary book … brutally vivid' - The Times (a History Book of the Year); 'a dazzling history of a dazzling city' - The Arts Desk.
