The Successor
by Ismael Kadare

ISBN: 9781921145063
PUBLISHER: Text Publishing Co
FORMAT: Paperback
PAGES: 220
PUBLICATION DATE: 6.02.2006


DESCRIPTION:
A powerful political novel based on the sudden, mysterious death of the man who had been handpicked to succeed the hated Albanian dictator Enver Hoxha, by an author the Wall Street Journal called 'one of the most compelling novelists now writing in any language'. Did he commit suicide or was he murdered? That is the burning question. For the man who died by his own hand, or another's, was in real life Mehmet Shehu, the presumed heir to the ailing dictator. So sure was the world that he was next in line, he was known as The Successor. And then, shortly before he was to assume power, he was found dead. The Successor is simultaneously a mystery novel, an historical novel - based on actual events and buttressed by the author's private conversations with the son of the real life Mehmet Shehu - and a psychological novel; how do you live when nothing is sure? Vintage Kadare, The Successor seamlessly blends dream and reality, legendary past and contemporary history.
