A soaring, dazzling novel (The New York Times), here is Mirra Ginsburg's critically-acclaimed translation of one of the most important and best-loved modern classics in world literature.

The Master and Margarita has been captivating readers around the world ever since its first publication in 1967.

The Master and Margarita combines fable, fantasy, political satire, and slapstick comedy to create a wildly entertaining and unforgettable tale that is commonly considered the greatest novel to come out of the Soviet Union. It appears in this edition in a translation by Mirra Ginsburg that was judged brilliant by Publishers Weekly.
