[percy-l] re Percy and Bukgakov

dear fellow appreciators of Walker Percy,

I’ve just finished rereading “Love in the Ruins” -- my fourth or fifth
reading since the book was published in 1971 -- and find it even funnier
and more on target than I did during earlier readings.

On this reading I was struck by how Percy’s portrait of the devil resembles
the devil in Bulgakov’s novel “The Master and Margarita.” Is that a book
Percy was familiar with? Did he ever write about or discuss Bulgakov?
