I put in Google - Walker Percy and Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita and all I could find was that the two books often appear together on lists of favorite books. Here are two examples. Also in a list of books related to Faust, both are mentioned.Janet Cantor

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
