About the Author

Mikhail Bulgakov (1891-1940) was born and educated in Kiev where he graduated as a doctor in 1916. He rapidly abandoned medicine to write some of the greatest Russian literature of this century. He died impoverished and blind in 1940 shortly after completing his masterpiece, The Master and Margarita.

Reviews

"One of the truly great Russian novels of [the twentieth] century." --NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW"The book is by turns hilarious, mysterious, contemplative, and poignant . . . A great work."--CHICAGO TRIBUNE"Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita is a soaring, dazzling novel; an extraordinary fusion of wildly disparate elements. It is a concerto played simultaneously on the organ, the bagpipes, and a pennywhistle, while someone sets off fireworks between the players' feet."--NEW YORK TIMES"Fine, funny, imaginative . . . The Master and Margarita stands squarely in the great Gogolesque tradition of satiric narrative."--NEWSWEEK "A wild surrealistic romp . . . Brilliantly flamboyant and outrageous."--Joyce Carol Oates"Sparkling, enchanting, funny, deeply serious and sometimes baffling . . . [The Master and Margarita is] a liberating, exuberant social and political satire combined with a profound moral and political allegory . . . A bravura performance of truly heroic virtuosity, a carnival of the imagination." --from the Introduction by Simon Franklin
