One of the Greats

The Master and Margarita reviewed

If you haven't read it, this is one of those books you do yourself a service by reading.  Complex, entangled, a satire and an intriguing look at Stalinist Russia.


  1. Steven,

    This is a novel that requires multiple readings--for complex and entangled it clearly is. A book club I belong to scheduled it several years ago and we spent most of the time trying to untangle it--one suggested that surreal would be a good description.

  2. Definitely on my "to read" list. I started out with Heart of a Dog as my intro to Bulgakov and loved it...I'm definitely looking forward to reading this.
