The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov
The Master and Margarita

Katya0046, January 1, 2010

I first read this when I was a Russian student at the Defense Language Institute several years ago. I was naturally interested, having heard that it was suppressed for several decades and caused a sensation when it was finally released as serial in Moscow magazine in the 60s. Both understandably--the book is a stunning portrait of the surreal-ity that permeated life during the Stalinist years, but it's more than that--it's a meditation on the nature of good and evil, and so beautiful and funny and moving that it's hard to believe that it came from the mind of a mere mortal.
