Meetup Thirty: The Master and Margarita

Hey team - for the official 30th meetup of the Williamsburg Modern Lit bookclub, we're going to be tackling Bulgakov'sThe Master and Margarita, a burning Soviet satire considered to be one of the top novels of the 20th century. The novel is written in a blended fantastic style, centering on religious mystical plot elements and farcical observations of Soviet bureaucratic society. Key characters include: a lightly disguised professor who embodies Satan, a mischievous black cat called Behemoth, the angel Azazel under the guise of a fanged hitman, Pontius Pilate, the head of the Roman Secret Service, and a character based on a non-traditional interpretation of Jesus outside of mainstream Christian dogma. Please take a look at some of the plot summaries online to get a feel for the book - this one is sure to be an interesting discussion, hope to see you all there.
