When Maxudov's novel fails, he attempts suicide. When that fails, he dramatises his novel. To the resentment of literary Moscow, the play is accepted by the Independent Theatre. Maxudov plunges into a world of inflated egos, but each rehearsal sees less chance of the play being performed.

Mikhail Bulgakov (1891 - 1940) was born and educated in Kiev where he graduated as a doctor in 1916. He rapidly abandoned medicine to write some of the greatest Russian literature of this century. After a lifetime at odds with the stultifying Soviet regime, he died impoverished and blind in 1940, shortly after completing his masterpiece, The Master and Margarita. None of his major fiction was published during his lifetime.About the Author:
