This is simply great. Hoyt, do you know how I could download that video on my Mac so that i can look it off line and maybe not sitting in front of the computer screen?
Thanks in advance.
Try Miro. Its free. You will probably have to save each part of the movie though. I saved a couple of parts and it seems to work OK. You can also convert to different formats. There may be a better way but I just clicked on File, then Download from URL, then pasted in the You Tube URL.

You caused me to laugh outloud! I got so lengthy with so many questions (aside from the problems I've been having with my internet connection) that I kept losing my train of thought. I also had the thought that most folks had moved on, lost interest in the Master, et al.

I've read this book several times. In Russian. When (any) book is translated, it loses its charm. If you'd read this book in original, you'd enjoy it a lot. Bulgakov is an unique author, a genius. He's pretty weird though.

welcome on this thread, applepie. unluckily, or unwisely, I cannot read even the paper titles in Russian. But I read Bulgakov both in English and in Italian, several times nad enjoyed it more and more each time. As I grow older, wiser(?) and more interested in the facets of life and its surreal aspects, this book has more to offer.

Why weird?
Can you expand?

When I spoke to a Russian guy I work with, he mentioned that it's probably hard for me to really appreciate the absurdity of the story.

He said that Russian society was so absurd that Russian readers would immediately relate to Bulgakov's story. He tells me this is one of his favourite books.

I recently finished reading a pair of Russian novels written and set in 1930s Soviet Union about a unscrupulous con artist running around Russia after a treasure using all sorts of tricks and wiles. They are called Diamonds for Sitting On and The Golden Calf by Ilya Ilf. If you want to read a less literary, but amusing set of stories set in this era, I would recommend these books.

On one of those, Mel Brooks might have based his second film: The twelve chairs. Hilarious.

You are correct. Diamonds for Sitting on has also been translated as The Twelve Chairs and was the source material for the movie.
