WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY ANDREY KURKOV

A rich, successful Moscow professor befriends a stray dog and attempts a scientific first by transplanting into it the testicles and pituitary gland of a recently deceased man. A distinctly worryingly human animal is now on the loose, and the professor's hitherto respectable life becomes a nightmare beyond endurance. An absurd and superbly comic story, this classic novel can also be read as a fierce parable of the Russian Revolution.

As high-spirited as it is pointed. Unlike so much satire, it has a splendid sense of fun - Irish Times

A marvellous writer - Michael Frayn

Bulgakov here assaults the dour utilitarian lives of Soviet citizens with a defiant, boisterous display of nonsense - The Times
