The five, irreverant, satirical and imaginative stories contained in
Diaboliad caused an uproar upon the book's first publication in 1925. Full
of invention, they display Bulgakov's breathtaking stylistic range, moving
at dizzying speed from grotesque satire to science fiction, from the
plainest realism to the most madcap fantasy. Diaboliad is a wonderful
introduction to literature's most uncategorisable and subversive genius.
