Waterstones Says

Shrewd, enchanting and extremely funny, Bulgakov’s seminal masterpiece is one of the most sparkling critiques of totalitarianism ever produced. Ingeniously intertwining narratives, from remorse-ridden Pontius Pilate to a persecuted writer in Stalinist Moscow, The Master and Margarita is a powerful meditation on love, evil, freedom and the greatest magician of all – literature.

Bulgakov paints an excellent picture of Stalin's regime in this allegorical masterpiece.

With an introduction by Will Self

The devil makes a personal appearance in Moscow accompanied by various demons, including a naked girl and a huge black cat. When he leaves, the asylums are full and the forces of law and order are in disarray. Only the Master, a man devoted to truth, and Margarita, the woman he loves, can resist the devil's onslaught.
