ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the book "The Successor," by Ismail Kadare. It is the first of the Albanian novelist's books to be published since he won the inaugural Man Booker International Prize. Kadare says that the book immerses the reader in the nightmarish shadow world that was communist Albania. Based loosely on events surrounding the 1981 murder of the man hand-picked by Albania President Enver Hoxha as his heir, it transforms the real events and characters into shadowy figures enmeshed in a web of paranoia and intrigue.
