About This Item

Toronto: Anchor Canada, 2009 In the early fifteenth century, as winter falls away, the people of Albania know that their fate is sealed. They have refused to negotiate with the Ottoman Empire, and war is now inevitable. Soon enough dust kicked up by Turkish horses is spotted from a citadel. Brightly coloured banners, hastily constructed minarets and tens of thousands of men fill the plain below. From this moment on, the world is waiting to hear that the fortress has fallen. The Siege tells the enthralling story of the weeks and months that follow of the exhilaration and despair of the battlefield, the constantly shifting strategies of war, and those whose lives are held in balance, from the Pasha himself to the technicians, artillerymen, astrologer, blind poet and harem of women that accompany him.. First Thus.. Softcover. As New.

Synopsis

Ismail Kadare was born in 1936 in Gjirokastër, in the south of Albania. His first novel, The General of the Dead Army , established him as a major new voice in literature, and translations of his novels have since been published in more than forty countries. Chronicle in Stone , The Successor , and Agamemnon’s Daughter are all available from Doubleday Canada. In 2005 he won the inaugural Man Booker International Prize. David Bellos, Director of the Program in Translation at Princeton University, is the translator of seven of Ismail Kadare’s novels.
