The master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )
61 editions published between 1969 and 2016 in Polish and held by 118 libraries worldwide
Tej powieści Michaił Bułhakow poświęcił 12 lat życia. Zaczął ją pisać w 1928 r., ale po dwóch latach spalił rękopisy, uznając, że w ZSRR nie ma przed nim - jako pisarzem - żadnej przyszłości. Powrócił do pisania w 1931 r. Książkę kończył w strachu przed aresztowaniem, bo stworzona przez niego na 60. urodziny Stalina sztuka "Batumi" nie spodobała się jubilatowi. Gniew dyktatora sprawił, że Bułhakow rozchorował się i przestał wychodzić z domu. Jego ostatnie dni opisała żona Jelena. Jej zapiski, po raz pierwszy publikowane w Polsce, wzbogaciły to wydanie "Mistrza i Małgorzaty". W obecnej edycji zaznaczono też miejsca, w których ingerowała cenzura.Powieść ukazała się niemal 30 lat po śmierci pisarza - w okrojonej formie - i stała się prawdziwą sensacją. Pierwsze polskie wydanie zniknęło z księgarń w ciągu jednego dnia. Satyryczna opowieść o państwie totalitarnym i wyjątkowa na tle światowej literatury historia miłości urzekła wszystkich, nie tylko wytrawnych znawców literatury."Mistrz i Małgorzata" należy do kanonu powieści XX w. Trudno sobie bez niej wyobrazić współczesną kulturę.Fraza "rękopisy nie płoną" weszła do języka potocznego - dziś wiemy, że słowo potrafi być nieśmiertelne, a wybitna twórczość przetrwa największe kataklizmy
The white guard by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )
16 editions published between 1972 and 2011 in Polish and held by 22 libraries worldwide
"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, Amazon.com

His quest through the labyrinth of Soviet bureaucracy takes on the increasingly surreal dimensions of a nightmare.
