Rudian Stefa is called in for uestioning by the Party Committee An unknown girl – Linda B – has been found dead with a signed copy of his latest book in her possession Rudian remembers writing the dedication at the reuest of Linda’s friend who has since become his mis. May I see the book again he asked the investigatorHe opened it with his left hand because his right hand was shaking He stared at his own handwriting The inscription had been written on the first night of his most recent play in the foyer immediately afterward For Linda B a souvenir from the author June 12th Most authors sign a lot of copies of their books over their lifetime Rudian Stefa is no exception The Party Committee has called him in to see if he remembers this girl this Linda B Stefa is used to being investigated His most recent play is up before the Artistic Board over some problems with a ghost in act 2 He has learned to write very carefully to slide what would be considered subversive ideas through the various layers of bureaucratic oversight So he thinks he is before The Party for one thing and finds out that he is there for another reason a very strange reason He shouldn t remember the girl but he does remember the girl not Linda B but the girl who brought the book to be signed for Linda B Migena The name Migena and the word enigma fluttered through his mind attempting to come together They were anagrams Migena enigma To make sure he wrote the words on the menu next to the words for expresso coffee Yes they really were anagrams Yes shuffle the letters of Migena and you got enigma She is gorgeous and she is interested in him When he is with her the pressures of his life seem to explode out of him When she is away a bitter anxiety sets in like a dreary windy winter s day He doesn t trust her He can t ascertain how she sees her role in his life The clumsy thought passed through her mind that her breasts were just as sweet whether she was an informer or not Ismail Kadare talks about the internments imposed on people by the State One of those laws was extremely strange and many people believed it must be uniue to Albania This law concerned political prisoners and internees who died before completing their sentences Their bodies even though vacated by their souls had to continue serving their sentences in the grave wherever they happened to be until the end Only after the expiry of the term of their sentence did their families have the right to exhume them from the cemeteries designated by the state and take them wherever they wished That reminds me of situations from Medieval Europe when corpses of enemies of a King were dug up drawn and uartered and then hung THEY ARE DEAD ALREADY A sentenced person in Albania has to keep serving hisher sentence even after they are dead We have several examples in history where a far left communist government becomes so paranoid and so hard hearted as to forget that their own people are living breathing adult human beings not cattle who need to be herded or immature children who need to be told how to live every aspect of their life or that a prison sentence needs to be fulfilled by the corpse of the perpetrator There is an insanity that seems to come with far left or far right political theory Communism goes so far left and Fascism goes so far right that they start to be indistinguishable from each other The scale that has them going in opposite directions curves and they meet up again at the House of Horrors This is not one of my favorite Ismail Kadare s but that could be because he is just way too smart for me Maybe I didn t see a couple of clues or maybe I just need to be Albanian to decipher the words that are not written but implied The mercilessly crossed out lines loomed black and the survivors huddled awkwardly as if cowering in shame amid the carnage In such a short book Kadare does take on some big subjects censorship lovelust tyranny and a topic that should be on everyone s mind the whys of suicide Kadare will take you down a Franz Kafka hypnagogic hallucination inspired crooked alley of ghostly delusions if you can read the Albanian street signs If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at

E penguara Reuiem për Linda B

She loved Rudian from a distance and the risks she was prepared to take so that she could get close to him A Girl in Exile is a stunning deeply affecting portrait of life and love under surveillance infused with myth wry humour and the chilling absurdity of a paranoid regim. I have a couple of noughties Kadare paperbacks unread which both have pointedly austere and literary covers This one with its title and falling female silhouette seems aimed at the new audience for moderately literary thrillers with unreliable point of view characters and names including the word Girl Who will likely be disappointed as the Orpheus references take hold and everything goes magic realist but I was ensnared having spent much of the earlier stretch wondering if a lot had been lost in translation The sections on literary life under the socialist realist jackboot don t hold a candle to Bulgakov but the bizarre emotional entanglements have odd glimmering vignettes where they bear comparison to de BeauvoirReview copy my professional review of which will be appearing in some of what remains of the British regional press in a month or so

Tress but has now disappeared He soon learns that Linda’s family considered suspect were exiled to a small Albanian town far from the capital and that the girl committed suicideBut what really happened to Linda B Through layers of intrigue her story gradually unfolds how. Another astonishing novel by an author of outstanding talent Where one might ask is Kadare s Nobel PrizeI have sought out and read Kadare ever since he won the inaugural Man Booker International prize in 2005 thereby coming to the attention of readers in North America At first it was easy to find titles in major bookstores but this no longer the case The recent works including this one have not appeared in Canada instead I pick them up while on trips to Europe A Girl in Exile Reuiem for Linda B is a multilayered complex story of love and loss But this no conventional love story Informing the whole of the story is the mythical tale of Orpheus who goes into Hades to lead Eurydice back into the world of the living only to lose her forever when he disobeys the command not to look back Written originally in Albanian the novel has been translated beautifully by John Hodgson who also translated The Fall of the Stone City and The Accident
