    DescriptionIn a seamless mosaic of dreams and games, Kadare's young narrator both reflects and distorts events as his ancient, magical home town and his own innocence and sense of wonder are lost forever in the madness and brutality of the Second World War. A disturbing mix of tragedy, comedy, politics and sexuality, Chronicle in Stone is a fascinating early masterpiece from the winner of the inaugural Man Booker International Prize.

    Author Information
    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.
    Review quote
    "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"
