Bulgakov's 'theatrical novel' Black Snow introduces the reader to the unfortunate Maxudov, whose efforts to publish a book, and later to turn that same book (based on his own suicide attempt) into a play, are met with varying degrees of contempt, incompetence and unhelpful interference from the literary contingent of Moscow. Mikhaíl Afanasyevich Bulgakov (Russian: Михаил Булгаков) was the first of six children in the family of a theology professor. His family belonged to the intellectual elite of Kyiv.

After a lifetime spent struggling against censorship, not least in the theater, Bulgakov died in 1940, not long after completing his masterpiece, The Master and Margarita. When Maxudov's novel, fails, he attempts suicide. When that fails, he dramatizes his novel. To Maxudov's surprise - and the resentment of literary Moscow - the play is accepted by the legendary Independent Theater, and Maxudov plunges into a vortex of inflated egos.

Bulgakov fictionalizes in BLACK SNOW his disastrous encounter with the Moscow Art Theatre, including Stanislavski himself, when the theatre commissioned him to write a play based on his first (unsuccessful) novel. The book is very funny in places, and his portrait of the chilly, neurotic, egomaniacal Stanislavski is worth the price of admission. There are also a couple of epic drunks, on the magnitude we usually encounter only in Russian fiction. Still, BLACK SNOW isn't as fine a book as THE MASTER AND MARGARITA, and people who come to it from that wonderful novl may feel let down.

I stumbled across Mikhail Bulgakov completely by accident. I was reading up on Stanislavsky, the reknowned Russian acting teacher, and came across this little book as part of my research.
What followed was surely a possessed spell where I couldn't put it down. While truly biased, as being an actor, by the behind the scenes aspect of the mythological Moscow Art Theatre, I was more overcome by just how appetizing Bulgakov's prose truly is.
Bulgakov's absolute disregard for typical structure and wordflow are what makes him so readable. He truly captures the essence of lonliness and the absurdity any creative feels when they are mining the depths of imagination and the dread that follows with it's exposure.
While it may help to have a foot in the lore of Stanislavsky and the Art Theatre, I DO believe this work can stand on it's own. The only regret, I felt, was when it ended. It's quite abrupt and left me wanting an entire 'second half'.
But, then, as they say in theatre. 'Leave them wanting more.'
A great intro to futher reading of Bulgakov, if, like me, your just stumbling upon him.

Vushura
Black Snow is a satirical retelling of Bulgakov's experiences in writing his first novel and play and working with the theater in Moscow. This volume has a forward which identifies some of the fictional names with the actual names of the individuals portrayed.
Unlike Bulgakov's other novels, this could occasionally improve by editing - a third of a page of jobs constituting all of humanity is a bit much. The characters are in general very specific personalities in which Bulgakov assumes that character recognition relieves him of the duty to provide fully fleshed out characters.
On the flip side, the novel is an amusing and telling romp through the hidden side of theater and Bulgakov's humorous skill is unscathed by the novel's shortcomings. Even well-worn humor such as mistaken names becomes fresh in Bulgadov's hands.
I recommend this book to theater and Bulgakov junkies; for others I would neither encourage nor discourage you from picking up the volume.

Contancia
In this autobiographical novel, Bulgakov describes his experiences working with the Moscow Art Theatre of Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko in the 1930's. The characters and situations are exaggerated to enhance the satire, and it is obviously not impartial, but it is extremely revealing nonetheless. This book, which is critical of Stanislavsky's method and the Soviet theatre scene of the 1930's, gives a moving portrait of a talented, dedicated author working against incredible odds. As usual in Bulgakov, satire is mixed with a serious message. Anyone interested in Bulgakov, the theatre, or Russian cultural history will enjoy this book.

Saw parts of it presented for a UIL One Act & it was interesting & funny. Not sure how you'd go about staging the entire play though, as the cast is enormous. I also liked the twist at the end.

Vrion
It came with lots of markings in it. The markings made it difficult to read. Although it came on time, I wasn't pleased with the shape it was in.

Ventelone
Bulgakov's Theatrical Novel - which has been published both as Black Snow and as A Dead Man's Memoir - was never finished. The first part of the novel is complete, but Part Two is little more than a fragment. That being said, Black Snow is one of Bulgakov's most blisteringly funny works. The epilogue / post script reveals a plot twist not entirely justified by the text as it exists; I'm sure that were Part Two to have been completed the buildup tot his big reveal would be great reading. But what's the point of idle speculation? That this book has survived in any form is good news for readers (my outlook may be influenced by the fact that, as a Greek student, I'm used to fragmentary works-- half-sentences of Sappho and the like). Anyone who loves the Master and Margarita and doesn't mind fragments should at least give this a try.
