'The Master and Margarita' by Mikhail Bulgakov

"This novel is one of the most imaginative, grotesque, and beautiful satires on the political and belief system of a society I've ever read. Whether it's the early to mid-20th century Russian society or ours today, it still fits and makes you rethink from a different point of view."

— From Barbara, who listens to WPLN in Nashville.
