The Master and Margarita is a novel by Mikhail Bulgakov, woven around the premise of a visit by the Devil to the fervently atheistic Soviet Union. Many critics consider the book to be one of the greatest novels of the 20th century, as well as one of the foremost Soviet satires, directed against a suffocatingly bureaucratic social order.

The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared is a fun, breezy book that is crying out to be made into a road movie. It’s also the perfect holiday read, except for the fact that you’ll disturb your fellow plane passengers by laughing too much.

Allan Karlsson crawled, as the Scandinavian titles more precisely have it, out the window and ran away from his old people’s home just before his 100th birthday party was to start. Creaked away, rather, slightly weighed down by elderly joints and properly weighed down by a suitcase that he grumpily stole because his bus started to leave before the rude biker who asked him to watch it came back from the loo.
