99% done with The Master and Margarita

It’s quite a trick for a novelist to keep under control a story in which literally anything can happen at any moment: ghosts flying about, rooks driving cars, naked women riding flying pigs.

Interesting how at home Voland (the devil) is on earth while Matthew Levi and his kind seem like mud-smeared crazies stumbling about in sandals and stealing bread knives. Probably because peace can’t happen in this life.
