    Dosja H PDF/EPUB À Paperback dosja pdf, Dosja H eBookThis book starts by trying to be funny but it is a translation of a translation English from French from Albanian I presume the comedy was probably lost but detectedWe have an Albanian small town under the communist regime waiting for 2 Americans who are coming to do their research on oral history sung by wandering bards and a dying form of entertainment It begins with the town's mayor making the arrangements for the impending arrival of the two alleged scholars who most certainly are spies by writing reports and recruiting spies to spy on the spiesThe main part of the story that tackles the research and the historical aspects of narrated history is very interesting and quite captivating The hapless scholars do not realise that Albania and Serbia both claim the rights and origins of this form of history as they go about their business of recording sessions that are all too precious with the near extinction of the art

    Dosja H PDF/EPUB À Paperback dosja pdf, Dosja H eBookWith my parents living in Albania I was told I should really check out that country's most celebrated author Ismail Kadare nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature and I chose this book because a couple of people had described it as his most accessible novel First I always know with regret that reading a book in translation means losing some of the author's wit poetry meaning etc And this English edition is translated from the French which was translated from the original Albanian so who knows how much is missing when it's two steps removed from the author's own wordsThat said I loved the premise of the novel It follows the advent

    Dosja H PDF/EPUB À Paperback dosja pdf, Dosja H eBookClever fun book two Irish researchers travel to Albania to do research on oral epics after the invention of the tape recorder I love the strange mixture of styles here Kadare mixes Amis style slapsticky humor from the perspective of the locals with an elevated discourse on Homer and the complicated nature of assembling and re assembling a spoken poem The great chapter that reads like an essay on rhapsodes was my favorite but the work never gets heavy enough to lose sight of its sense of fun I would have loved for it to be a bit longer some subplots most specifically the fascinating interpolated writing from one of the great spies in literature die out weakly and the ending is telegraphed but this was a treat It doesn't reach the memoirish peaks of Twi
