Author Biography

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. After a lifetime at odds with the stultifying Soviet regime, he died impoverished and blind in 1940, shortly after completing his masterpiece, The Master and Margarita. None of his major fiction was published during his lifetime.

Review

"As high-spirited as it is pointed. Unlike so much satire, it has a splendid sense of fun" Irish Times "A marvellous writer" -- Michael Frayn "Bulgakov here assaults the dour utilitarian lives of Soviet citizens with a defiant, boisterous display of nonsense" The Times
