Product description

Review

"Brilliantly recreates the atmosphere of shadowy fear, rumours and recrimination in Albania. The Successor provides a mesmerically readable parable about the abuse of state power." (Observer)

"One of the most compelling novelists now writing." (Wall Street Journal)

"Suffused with the power of thought and feeling. Above all, Kadare creates a haunting sense of the absurd." (Sunday Times)

"From his youthful obsessions with Shakespeare and Homer, Kadare has retained not just a love of mystery and wit and a facility for clear, bleak language, but a sense of the text's own mystery and the impossibility of fully penetrating it... There is certainly nothing run-of-the-mill about Kadare's biting parable of tyranny." (Australian Financial Review)

Review

'One of the most compelling novelists now writing.'
