This is an utterly inspiring book. There is something that is so splendid about Russian authors. I don't know whether it is the awful weather, perhaps even the politics and the oppressive society but the works on the whole are excellent. I'm presuming that this book of nine short stories is autobiographical as Mikhail Bulgakov was actually a doctor but gave up the practice after four years at the age of twenty-nine to embrace a life of literature. The nine short stories are dark, chilling weather is everywhere, wolves, a lot of peasants who are really not the brightest but despite this there is an innate joy throughout the book. But what a life Bulgakov had as a doctor. Imagine just after qualifying as a doctor, he had assumed that he would continue working as an intern in one of the hospitals but instead he was sent into the hinterland to the Muryova Hospital, 32 miles from the village of Grachyovka. Upon his arrival he found out that the place had no electricity and he had some rather odd individuals to work for him. This is a very amusing book but is studded with stupidity or perhaps ignorance on behalf of many of the peasants who come to his surgery. This doctor has inspirations about the prognosis when he sees a patient even though he has hardly been a doctor for a minute. He's right in the majority of cases but most of the operations are done by quickly reading beforehand one of the many medical books that the previous doctor left. Many a time he thought the patient on the operating table was going to die but they survived. One young girl had a leg amputated and he thought that was definitely the end for her. No, she recovered and gaily came into his surgery on crutches for follow-up a few months later. She smiled all the time and would be sent to Moscow for a prosthesis. (The Embroidered Towel). A true delight to read.

Aptallarla Ne Yapmalı?
Bravery and stupidity are two sides of the same coin.
“why is life so tragic? so like a little strip of pavement over an abyss? I look down; I feel giddy; I wonder how I am ever to walk to the end... like a lantern stood in the middle of a field my life goes up in darknes... unhappiness is everywhere; just beyond the door; or stupidity which is worse” | virginia woolf

Those who did not know him oft took him for a brute, mistaking his silences and slowness of speech for stupidity.
