New editions coming up
February 14, 2008
Those who recently tried to find a new copy of the Dutch translation of The Master and Margarita, often returned empty-handed. The book is completely sold out. On his website, publisher Oorschot announced a new edition, which is to be expected in April 2008. It looks like it will be a hardcover edition with a rather unimaginative cover, however.
Novel, 448 pages
Translated by Marko Fondse and Aai Prins
Hardcover, € 17.50
