9780099518273: The Palace Of Dreams (Vintage Classics)

Translated by Barbara Bray from the French version of the Albanian by Jusuf Vrioni

At the heart of the Sultan's vast empire stands the mysterious Palace of Dreams. Inside, the dreams of every citizen are collected, sorted and interpreted in order to identify the 'master-dreams' that will provide the clues to the Empire's destiny and that of its Monarch. An entire nation's consciousness is thus meticulously laid bare and at the mercy of its government...

The Palace of Dreams is Kadare's macabre vision of tyranny and oppression, and was banned upon publication in Albania in 1981.

Review:

"Kadare's most daring novel, one of the most complete visions of totalitarianism ever committed to paper" ( Vanity Fair)

"If there is a book worth banning in a dictatorship, this is it" ( Guardian)

"Kadare's delicately misted view of another world (as much internal as totalitarian) lives up to the splendour of his title" ( Independent on Sunday)

"Inexorably takes your breath away" ( Herald)

From the Publisher:

A novel which arose from the authorís ambition to invent a hell of his own, Kadareís macabre vision of tyranny and oppression was banned immediately when it first appeared in Albania in 1981.

Translated by Barbara Bray from the French version of the Albanianby Jusuf Vrioni
