This Booker Prizewinning masterpiece was written in the 1980s during Albania's occupation by the Stalin regime. It was literally smuggled pages at a time to France so that it could be published. You have probably already guessed that it's stark political references and critique of power structures are what made this book so dangerous to publish in Kadare's native Albania.
