One spring afternoon the Devil, trailing fire and chaos in his wake, weaves himself out of the shadows and into Moscow. Bulgakov's fantastical, funny, and devastating satire of Soviet life combines two parts, one set in contemporary Moscow, the other in ancient Jerusalem, each brimming with historical, imaginary, frightful, and wonderful characters. Written during the darkest days of Stalin's reign, and finally published in 1966 and 1967, The "Master and Margarita" became a literary phenomenon, signaling artistic and spiritual freedom for Russians everywhere.

This translation, by the award-winning team of Pevear and Volokhonsky, is made from the complete and unabridged Russian text.
