White guard by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )

"White Guard, Mikhail Bulgakov's semi-autobiographical first novel, is the story of the Turbin family in Kiev in 1918. Alexei, Elena, and Nikolka Turbin have just lost their mother - their father had died years before - and find themselves plunged into the chaotic civil war that erupted in the Ukraine in the wake of the Russian Revolution. In the context of this family's personal loss and the social turmoil surrounding them, Bulgakov creates a brilliant picture of the existential crises brought about by the revolution and the loss of social, moral, and political certainties. He confronts the reader with the bewildering cruelty that ripped Russian life apart at the beginning of the last century as well as with the extraordinary ways in which the Turbins preserved their humanity. In this volume Marian Schwartz, a leading translator, offers the first complete and accurate translation of the definitive original text of Bulgakov's novel. She includes the famous dream sequence, omitted in previous translations, and beautifully solves the stylistic issues raised by Bulgakov's ornamental prose. Readers with an interest in Russian literature, culture, or history will welcome this superb translation of Bulgakov's important early work. This edition also contains an informative historical essay by Evgeny Dobrenko."--Book description,

The fatal eggs by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )
17 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: An inspired work of science fiction and a biting political allegory, Bulgakov's The Fatal Eggs tells of a brilliant scientist whose experiments with life spiral terribly, and fatefully, out of control. Foreword by Doris Lessing. Quite by chance, Professor Persikov discovers a new form of light ray whose effect, when directed at living cells, is to accelerate growth in primitive organisms. But when this ray is shone on the wrong batch of eggs, the Professor finds himself both the unwilling creator of giant hybrids and the focus of a merciless press campaign. For it seems the propaganda machine has turned its gaze upon him, distorting his nature in the very way his "innocent" tampering created the monster snakes and crocodiles that now terrorize the neighborhood. Russian novelist and dramatist Mikhail Bulgakov (1891-1940) is one of the foremost satirists of the 20th century
Teatral'nyi roman by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )
71 editions published between 1965 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eine wunderbare Satire und scharfe Polemik gegen die Kulturpolitik des Russland der 30er Jahre. Mit beissender Ironie und bitterem Sarkasmus beschreibt 'Aufzeichnungen eines Toten' (1936/37) Bulgakows Einstieg in die groteske Literatur- und Theaterwelt im Moskau der zwanziger Jahre. Michail Bulgakow wurde am 15. Mai 1891 in Kiew geboren und starb am 10. März 1940 in Moskau. Nach einem Medizinstudium arbeitete er zunächst als Landarzt, zog aber dann nach Moskau, um sich ganz der Literatur zu widmen. Er gilt als einer der grössten russischen Satiriker und hatte zeitlebens unter der stalinistischen Zensur zu leiden. Seine zahlreichen Dramen durften nicht aufgeführt werden, seine bedeutendsten Prosawerke konnten erst nach seinem Tod veröffentlicht werden
A country doctor's notebook by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )
31 editions published between 1963 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Part autobiography, part fiction, this early work by the author of The Master and Margarita shows a master at the dawn of his craft, and a nation divided by centuries of unequal progress. In 1916 a 25-year-old, newly qualified doctor named Mikhail Bulgakov was posted to the remote Russian countryside. He brought to his position a diploma and a complete lack of field experience. And the challenges he faced didn't end there: he was assigned to cover a vast and sprawling territory that was as yet unvisited by modern conveniences such as the motor car, the telephone, and electric lights. The stories in A Country Doctor's Notebook are based on this two-year window in the life of the great modernist. Bulgakov candidly speaks of his own feelings of inadequacy, and warmly and wittily conjures episodes such as peasants applying medicine to their outer clothing rather than their skin, and finding himself charged with delivering a baby'having only read about the procedure in text books. Not yet marked by the dark fantasy of his later writing, this early work features a realistic and wonderfully engaging narrative voice'the voice, indeed, of twentieth century Russia's greatest writer.

Dʹi︠a︡voliada : rasskazy by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )
49 editions published between 1925 and 2007 in 8 languages and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Bulgakov's "Diaboliad", the modest and unassuming office clerk Korotkov is summarily sacked for a trifling error from his job at the First Central Depot for the Materials for Matches, and tries to seek out his newly assigned superior Kalsoner, responsible for his dismissal. His quest through the labyrinth of Soviet bureaucracy takes on the increasingly surreal dimensions of a nightmare. This early satirical story, reminiscent of Gogol and Dostoevsky, was first published in 1924 and incurred the wrath of pro-Soviet critics

The professor and the poet who've come to Patriarch's Ponds for a stroll on a hot and stagnant Moscow afternoon are dismayed to encounter a quite extraordinary stranger, surely a deranged foreigner. As this quixotic character recalls a centuries-old story of destiny, his infamy becomes a matter of gruesome revelation for the doomed professor and his poor companion. And what will become of the Master's suppressed masterpiece? Something his lover, Margarita, will go to great lengths to ensure
