When I first started blogging years ago, I wrote exclusively about books and named my blog after a short story by Vladimir Nabokov. Russian literature is stylistically similar to Bosnian literature and reminds me of the stories my grandmother used to tell me.

In all of this time of reading and hunting down obscure Russian literature, I’ve never read The Master and Margarita. This year marks the 50th anniversary of this Russian classic and I couldn’t resist picking up the Pevear and Volokhonsky translation with this gorgeous cover.
