With this fall’s 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution I’m looking forward to recommending some great contemporary novels depicting the event and the years that followed in its wake. MIKHAIL AND MARGARITA by Julie Lekstrom Himes is a fictionalized account of the artistic and amorous life of Mikhail Bulgakov, author of the Russian classic THE MASTER AND MARGARITA. Bulgakov was at once Stalin’s favorite writer and victim of his suspicious cruelty. Bulgakov’s love for the young and beautiful Margarita makes her an easy target for Stalin’s manipulation of the writer. A gripping depiction of great art colliding with political repression.
