Elaborate Description

A book politically inspired meant to be a satire of Russia under Stalin. Representing Russia but with historical backdrop of a trial in Judea. The book is a compilation of multiple stories of dealings with the devil and his retinue. The devil underpinning the majority of events.

The major philosophical lesson regards the perception of truth. Even when someone knows the truth, if everyone else believes it to be false, the person is taken for a fool. When facing what is true, there is hesitation to accept it.
