Annushka (the Plague)

One of the few characters to keep her actual name in Bulgakov's novel. Bulgakov's first wife remembered Annushka Goryacheva, who lived across the corridor in Apt. 50. The apartment was a sort of working-class dormitory with 7 rooms off a central corridor. Annushka had a son and beat him often. They used to buy home-brew vodka, get drunk, fight, and make noise.
