The Second World War is about to start but life, for a young boy in a small town in Albania, is still a game. Yet, as the country falls to the Italians, then the Greeks, then eventually to the Nazis, and is mercilessly bombed by the British, the boy grows up. Falling in love with unattainable women, seduced by witchcraft and literature, and finally evacuated to a remote village, his existence changes from 'marvellous, terrifying and extraordinary' into a sickening world where the severed arm of a British airman becomes a talisman and girls disappear - possibly murdered by their own fathers. Forging the unexpected and terrible link between childish playfulness and a horrifying political future, Ismail Kadare has created a story with a depth and brilliance characteristic of the master story-teller.

Notă biografică

ISMAIL KADARE was born in 1936 in Gjirokaster, in the south of Albania. He studied in Tirana and Moscow, returning to Albania in 1960 after the country broke ties with the Soviet Union. He became a journalist and published poet, and his first novel, The General of the Dead Army, established him as a respected writer. Translations of his novels have since been published in more than forty countries, and in 2005 he became the first winner of the Man Booker International Prize.


"Chronicle in Stone is stunning, the quintessential tale of war seen through a child's eyes." Los Angeles Times "Sophisticated and accomplished in its poetic prose and narrative deftness." The New Yorker "Epic in its simplicity; the history of a young Albanian and a primitive Albania awakening into the modern world." Minneapolis Star Tribune"
