Notes on a Cuff and Other Stories, Paperback / softback Book

Notes on a Cuff and Other Stories Paperback / softback


Begun in 1920 while Bulgakov was employed in a hospital in the remote Caucasian outpost of Vladikavkaz, and continued when he started working for a government literary department in Moscow, Notes on a Cuff is a series of journalistic sketches which show the young doctor trying to embark on a literary career among the chaos of war, disease, politics and bureaucracy. Stylistically brilliant and brimming with humour and literary allusion, Notes on a Cuff is presented here in a new translation, along with a collection of other short pieces by Bulgakov, many of them - such as `The Cockroach' and `A Dissolute Man' - published for the first time in the English language.
