Originally a doctor, born in Kiev (on the 3rd May 1891 Old Style, 15th May Western style)in a house which is now a museum dedicated to his memory and is described in his first novel 'The White Guard'. When adapted as a play. 'The White Guard' became a favourite of Stalin's. Bulgakov's superb novel 'The Master and Margarita', counterpointing Soviet Russia of the 1930s with Judaea at the time of Jesus, is one of the greatest works of the 20th Century, but could not be published until the 1960s, long after his death. Also essential reading are the satirical 'The Heart of a Dog', and his diaries, recovered from the KGB archives after the fall of communism and published under the title 'Manuscripts Don't Burn', from a famous phrase in 'Master and Margarita'.
