Book: The Master and Margarita

By Mikhail Bulgakov

This was a very special book. This is a fiction book, a satirical book in life in Moscow … I generally only read one fiction book a year but decided to invest time in this book because it comes recommended by so many people. I highly recommend it.

Bulgakov wrote this book twice (he burned it in his oven the first time because he was afraid the Soviet authorities would find it). His wife finished it after his death in 1940 but it wasn’t published until 1966 and then not in full until 1973. it is probably the best known Russian work for fiction from the 20th Century.

The wikipedia entry for the book is very good.
