Summary

An old woman is awoken in the dead of night by knocks at her front door. She opens it to find her daughter, Doruntine, standing there alone in the darkness. She has been brought home from a distant land by a mysterious rider she claims is her brother Konstandin. But unbeknownst to her, Konstandin has been dead for years. What follows is chain of events which plunges an Albanian village into fear and mistrust. Who is the ghost rider?

Author Biography

Ismail Kadare is Albania's best-known poet and novelist, and translations of his novels have appeared in more than 40 countries. In 2005 he was awarded the inaugural Man Booker International Prize for "a body of work written by an author who has had a truly global impact," and he has been a Nobel Prize in Literature candidate several times. His books include Broken April, Chronicle in Stone, The Siege, and The Successor, which was listed as a New York Times Notable Book. David Bellos, the director of the program in Translation at Princeton University, is also the translator of Georges Perecís Life A Userís Manual and a winner of the Goncourt Prize for biography. He has translated seven of Ismail Kadare's novels, and in 2005 was awarded the Translator's Prize awarded as part of the Man Booker International Prize for his translations of Kadare's work.
