"One of those few emancipated Soviet writers who firmly believe-and still believe-that to create is to choose" * Saturday Review *
"Worth reading in any language" * Library Journal *
"The White Guard captures the tumult, madness and confusion of revolution" * Independent *

About Mikhail Bulgakov


Mikhail Bulgakov (1891 - 1940) was born and educated in Kiev where he graduated as a doctor in 1916. He rapidly abandoned medicine to write some of the greatest Russian literature of this century. After a lifetime at odds with the stultifying Soviet regime, he died impoverished and blind in 1940, shortly after completing his masterpiece, The Master and Margarita. None of his major fiction was published during his lifetime.
