Master and the Margarita

Gebruikersrecensie  - OstkUser1370381 -

Delightful book with a different tone than the other famous Russian writers. This book makes for a good compare and contrast to Brothers Karamazov. I highly recommend this book for group discussion otherwise many points are lost when only read alone. Volledige review lezen

Over de auteur (2007)

Mikhail Bulgakov was born in Kiev in May 1891. The Master and Margarita, a fantasy novel about the devil and his henchmen set in modern Moscow, is generally considered his masterpiece. Fame, at home and abroad, was not to come until a quarter of a century after his death at Moscow in 1940. Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky have produced acclaimed translations of Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Gogol, and Bulgakov. Their translation of The Brothers Karamazov won the 1991 PEN/Book-of-the-Month Club Translation Prize. They are married and live in Paris, France.
