Product Description

This title is translated by Michael Glenny. With the ink still wet on his diploma the twenty-five-year-old Dr Mikhail Bulgakov was flung into the depths of rural Russia which in 1916-17 was still largely unaffected by such novelties as the motor car the telephone or electric light. How his alter-ego copes (or fails to cope) with the new and often appalling responsibilities of a lone doctor in a vast country practice – on the eve of Revolution – is described in Bulgakov’s delightful blend of candid realism and imaginative exuberance.
