Michael Glenny, who died in Moscow in August 1990, was Britain's foremost translator of modern Russian literature.
“One of the truly great Russian novels of [the twentieth] century.”
—NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
“The book is by turns hilarious, mysterious, contemplative,
and poignant . . . A great work.”
“Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita is a soaring, dazzling novel; an extraordinary fusion of wildly disparate elements. It is a concerto played simultaneously on the organ, the bagpipes, and a pennywhistle, while someone sets off fireworks between the players’ feet.”
—NEW YORK TIMES
“Fine, funny, imaginative . . . The Master and Margarita stands squarely in the great Gogolesque tradition of satiric narrative.”
“A wild surrealistic romp . . . Brilliantly flamboyant and outrageous.”
—Joyce Carol Oates
“Sparkling, enchanting, funny, deeply serious and sometimes baffling . . . [The Master and Margarita is] a liberating, exuberant social and political satire combined with a profound moral and political allegory . . . A bravura performance of truly heroic virtuosity, a carnival of the imagination.”
—from the Introduction by Simon Franklin
