Riassunto: The only translation of Bulgakov's entire first collection of short stories, works which range from the surreal to science-fiction to parody.

Dal risvolto interno: After a long period of suppression, Mikhail Bulgakov was discover in the West in 1967 with the posthumous publication of his masterpiece, The Master and Margarita. The present volume is the only complete translation of his first collection of short stories, plus six of his best feuilletons from the 1920s. The targets of Bulgakov's brilliant satires here include the Gogolian bureaucracy which mushroomed after the Revolution, the subjugation of science to the state, and the price to be paid when the new world of Communism clashes with the old order. Everywhere the reader will find Bulgakov's customary exuberance, brilliance and originality.
