9780099560883: The Three-Arched Bridge (Vintage Classics)

When the construction of a bridge built to link the Balkans to Europe is repeatedly and mysteriously sabotaged, an old ballad starts making the rounds at local taverns. The bards sing of a legend – a woman immured in a castle wall to prevent it from falling. Some say the bridge is being damaged by local ferrymen, others blame the vengeful water spirits. But this is a town where terror and superstition reign and a solution must be reached. So it is decreed: a willing person must be plastered into the bridge…

Review:

"A vivid, macabre and wise novel" ( New York Times)

"His ability to spin eerie parables out of a little-known national history makes his books an addictive pleasure" (Jonathan Romney Independent on Sunday)

"A compelling investigation into language and myth, politics and power, by the renowned, infinitely talented Albanian novelist" ( Booklist)

"[Kadare] is seemingly incapable of writing a book that fails to be interesting" ( New York Times)

"In Ismail Kadare's fictional worlds creation and destruction are entwined, and how he illuminates the human cost of their varied pairings is the source of his greatness as a writer" ( Chicago Tribune)

Book Description:

A hard-hitting parable about the conflicts that have ravaged the Balkan states, by Albania's most influential novelist.
