In this collection of short stories, drawing heavily from the authors own experiences as a medical graduate on the eve of the Russian Revolution, Bulgakov describes a young doctors turbulent and often brutal introduction to his practice in the backward village of Muryovo. Using a sharply realistic and humorous style, Bulgakov reveals his doubts about his own competence and the immense burden of responsibility, as he deals with a superstitious and poorly educated people struggling to enter the modern age. This acclaimed collection contains some of Bulgakovs most personal and insightful observations on youth, isolation and progress. This edition also includes the famous piece 'Morphine' by Bulgakov.
