Overview

ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE IN MOSCOW . . .


. . . when a mysterious "black magician" and his cronies arrive in the capital of the Soviet Union in the 1930s; ordinary Muscovites are confronted with utterly extraordinary occurrences. . .


THIS TITLE DESERVES A PLACE IN EVERY LIBRARY OF THE BEST LITERATURE OF THE 20TH CENTURY


Bulgakov's stunning novel combines the real and the fantastic, the comic and the absurd, the mundane and the supernatural, to provide the perfect vehicle for depicting the mood of a society that had just recently come through world war, revolution, civil war and radical experiments in political and economic engineering, and was trying to reconcile the excitement of a new, post-revolutionary era, with the harsh realities of Stalinist rule.

About the Author

John Dougherty is, among other things, a translator of Russian to English. He has a passion for language, awed by its power and potential. He has devoted his academic pursuits to trying to reconcile the generally hostile American view of Russians with the incredible brilliance, beauty, and humanity he finds in great Russian literature.
What began as a simple reading of this novel soon turned into a translating project that has produced this work. His hope is that this effort will do something, if even but a little, to keep this wonderful story alive.
