Book List 4-5-10

Here is the anticipated book list as received so far:


The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. One of the main characters is a cat who is part of the entourage of a "magician" who wreaks havoc in Moscow. The novel was banned for 40 years in the Soviet Union because it was an allegorical critique of the direction government and society were taking.
