"A fictional inquiry into the still-unexplained death of Mehmet Shehu, the man who for decades was the designated Number Two political figure in Communist dictator Enver Hoxha's ironfisted and increasingly paranoid regime." Kadare, who was the first winner of the Man Booker International Prize in 2005, first published this story in 2003, in Albanian. This edition is translated from Tedi Papavrami's French translation of the Albanian, and is by David Bellos. An available, but not terribly common, edition. Mustard boards w/gilt foil spine lettering, 207 pages. Gently bumped corners, light edgewear, in rubbed dust jacket w/light edgewear, scratches.
