Description
In this novella, written in Albania and smuggled into France a few pages at a time in the 1980s, Ismail Kadare denounces the machinery of a dictatorial regime that seeks to isolate every citizen from every other. A young worker for the Albanian state-controlled media agency narrates the story of his ill-fated love for the daughter of a high-ranking official, after he sees the ghostly image of Agamemnon—that ancient king who sacrificed his own daughter for his country—sharing the reviewing stand during a May Day celebration. The book includes two shorter pieces, "The Blinding Order" and "The Great Wall." Albanian author Ismail Kadare—a dissident writing in a country where dissidents were usually executed—captured the insanity and paranoia of his homeland in oblique, ironic allegories to pass the communist regime's censors. In 2005 he won the inaugural Man Booker International Prize for his translated works in English.
