"The Master and Margarita" by Michail Bulgakow (1891–1940) has inspired countless artists to design book covers (like for example Mercer Mayer) and even Mick Jagger claimed in an interview some years ago that he wrote the Rolling Stone’s hit "Sympathy for the Devil" after having finished this book. The story of a strange gentleman and his entourage coming to Moscow and the mixup that follows their unprecedented arrival is genuinely unique. It won't take you long to guess who really has come to town and all kinds of unforseen twists and turns will make you laugh out loud. Strange humour guaranteed. The first telegram from Jalta is just as funny as the story of Pontius Pilatus whom you will see in a completely different light after you are through with this book. Andrzej Klimowski, a polish graphic designer and artist even has adapted the book into a graphic novel. And actually, while reading it, you may recognize more than one scene of quite a few films you have seen during the last 20 years or so.
