The Master and Margarita showed me just how easy it is to mess up a nation

Aug 19 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: the guardian

If Bulgakovs satire was Russias favourite book, I figured this must be a place with a properly beating heartWhen I first heard of Mikhail Bulgakovs The Master and Margarita it was 1993 and I was living in St Petersburg during my university year abroad. I was teaching English (very badly), barely coping with temperatures of -15C and fighting a losing battle with the Russian language. This book made me realise I was not going to give up. And that I really wanted ...
