Description

""I saw how a piece of sky disappeared inside the monstrous voraciousness of the sand; I saw the rain squirm while it dried up; I saw the two Towers of Triumph crumble instantly as if they had never existed, and other stones melted and turned into sand. I saw abandoned castles that had resisted cannons, but could not resist the small sand grains that turned everything into desert. When the sand covered the bodies of people, it blocked the respiration of every pore and eroded their flesh until it revealed their bones, only to erode the bones and uncover their souls.""The prophecy of September 11th has been written in an old encrypted manuscript in Albania, but the manuscript is in the hands of a famous rapper who is proud that he has never read a book in his life. He is obliged to read this book, and find something important in it, even for himself.Memories, facts, and history are mixed in a complicated world of confrontation and coexistence between different civilizations.In the style of the serious medieval chronicles, full of philosophical sentences and metaphors, Bashkim Hoxha, the author of "Balkan Hotel," insists, "the desert does not come from afar, it either already is or it is not inside man's own self."show more
