About the Author

Mikhail Bulgakov was born in Kiev in 1891 and embarked on a first career in medicine, serving as a doctor in front line and district hospitals during the First World War. In 1920 however he abandoned medicine for a career in writing - from 1925 he was associated with the Moscow Arts Theatre but by 1930 his works were rarely published. Although he was subjected to a number of restrictions as a writer, and was considered the most 'un-Soviet' writer, he survived attacks from the officials, when others were imprisoned and perished in the 'Gulag Archipelago'. It took until the 1980's, forty years after his death, before his works were published in full.

Worth reading in any language * Library Journal *
The White Guard captures the tumult, madness and confusion of revolution * Independent *
