The Master and Margarita (Vintage Classic Russians Series) by Mikhail Bulgakov
'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.
