Product description

Review

"A master storyteller." John Carey "Kadare brilliantly recreates the atmosphere of shadowy fear, rumours and recrimination in Albania... a mesmerically readable parable about the abuse of state power." Observer "Suffused with the power of thought and feeling... Above all, Kadare creates a haunting sense of the absurd." The Sunday Times "Dream and reality melt together, as in Kafka, making it difficult to identify where the nightmares really begin." Misha Glenny, The Times"

About the Author

ISMAIL KADARE was born in 1936 in Gjirokaster, in the south of Albania. His first novel, The General of the Dead Army, established him as a respected writer, and translations of his novels have since been published in more than forty countries. In 2005 he won the inaugural Man Booker International Prize. DAVID BELLOS, a Professor of French and Comparative Literature, has translated five of Kadare's novels and was awarded the Translator's Man Booker International Prize in 2005.
