Malika Browne

Malika Browne is proof that one can read Russian at university and never once open anything by Tolstoy, a feat she isn't particularly proud of, and something she intends to put right one day with the help of Book Drum. While studying in St Petersburg she acquired a lifelong passion for Sovietica, fur hats, Nabokov, and kitsch. Now living in London, she is writing a book about Christian miracles in Damascus, where she recently spent three years.
