The world’s biggest country, in a magazine. Since 1956.
By Mikhail Bulgakov (Ardis, $17.95) Translated by Alison Rice
This Ardis reissue collects several of Bulgakov’s short prose works – including a fantastic and funny autobiographical account of his start as a writer, against all odds – mainly light reportage that pre- dates his playwriting and longer fiction. The genius is here in full view.
