Overview

After a long period of suppression, Milhail Bulgakov was discovered in the West in 1967 with the publication of his masterpiece, The Master and Margarita.

Diaboliad and Other Stories is the only complete translation of his first collection of short stories, plus six of his best feuilletons from the 1920s. The targets of Bulgakov's brilliant, dark satires here include the Gogolian bureaucracy that mushroomed after the Revolution, the subjugation of science to the state, and the price to be paid when the new world of Communism clashed with the old order. Everywhere the reader will find Bulgakov's customary exuberance, brilliance, and originality, as well as the distinctive voice that was to achieve full effect in The Master and Margarita.
