The Master and Margarita
by Charlotte Reads Classics
The Master and Margarita, Mikhail Bulgakov
… Manuscripts don’t burn.
A satire of 1930s Moscow / Russian atheism / love / religious philosophy
This was a challenging read, but a rewarding one. It is the kind of book that has made such an impact on literary culture so is full of references that are fun to pick up on.
Basically: Satan comes to Moscow and wreaks amusing but often sinister havoc with his band of demons. Also in the midst of this there are novels about Pontius Pilate and a love story.
