'A masterpiece - a classic of twentieth-century fiction' New York Times
Bulgakov paints a powerful picture of Stalin’s regime in this allegorical classic.
The devil makes a personal appearance in Moscow accompanied by various demons, including a naked girl and a huge black cat. When he leaves, the asylums are full and the forces of law and order are in disarray. Only the Master, a man devoted to truth, and Margarita, the woman he loves, can resist the devil's onslaught.
"This book is absorbing, brilliant slapstick, and looks deep in to the heart of fantasy and longing"
"Stunning, superb...Bulgakov is one of the greatest Russian writers, perhaps the greatest"
