Publisher's Summary

The White Guard is less famous than Mikhail Bulgakov's comic hit, The Master and Margarita, but it is a lovely book, though completely different in tone. It is set in Kiev during the Russian revolution and tells a story about the war's effect on a middle-class family (not workers). The story was not politically correct and thereby contributed to Bulgakov's lifelong troubles with the Soviet authorities. It was, however, well-loved, and the novel was turned into a successful play at the time of its publication in 1967.

Please note: This audiobook is in Russian.

it's not in english

I was very interested in this work and thought only the title was in the original language... The whole book is read in russian. If you don't speak russian, it hasn't any sense to buy it.

One family struggle in Kyiv

This book can provide some insight into what's going on in Kyiv right now. Novel based on events of the start of XX century. Many killings and betrayals, also some love and friendship.
