8% done with The Master and Margarita

While the first chapter is something about what I was expecting – funny, unsettling, lively – this second chapter is remarkable.

The entire interview of Jesus by Pontius Pilatus as told by someone who might have had a first-hand account of the event and not the hand-me-down, word of mouth version passed down and distorted through the ages. All discussing truth, too.

The image of that bird stays with me.
