Bulgakov at his best

This is such a great book that someone such as myself that had no interest in the theater or plays could not put it down. That is because this book is less about theater and more about people and living under oppression. Here is a biography of sorts on how a great work of writing can be buried under the weight of large egos, jealousy, and the soveit system. Yet this book dose not exclusivly apply to a period of time or place, it is made timeless through its superb use of memorable and realistic characters. This novel gives every reader the abailty to feel the pain of having ones best work destroyed before there very eyes and is highly recommened for people that have read any previous works of Bulgakov.
