Spring Flowers, Spring Frost: A Novel

Ismail Kadare


In a city on the foot of the northern Highlands, existence is going on as consistently, yet everyone is in a nation of concern: a financial institution has been robbed, a definite signal of the Westernization of this backward Balkan land. in the meantime, different unusual events-such because the marriage of a woman and a snake-confirm that historic legends nonetheless be successful. everyone is flocking from in every single place to go looking for a tunnel to the key country data, stated to accommodate documents of crimes they could have devoted. a few even declare the ghosts of former dictators Hoxha, Brezhnev, and Ulbricht-not to say Oedipus-have been visible there. . . . by contrast backdrop, an easy and sensual love tale among a painter and a woman sticks out as mild opposed to darkish.
