Warning! The listings and comments for NOOK editions are misleading, at least with "The Master and Margarita". The [NOOK Book] by Mikhail Bulgakov, Edward Kemp is not the novel, but Kemp's adaptation (play). The "Overview" references and credits Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky, but this is NOT their translation of the novel. I had no intention of getting the play version, so for me this is a non-refundable waste of money.
