Agamemnon's Daughter: A Novella and Stories - Ismail Kadaré, David Bellos, Tedi Papavrami This book was actually smuggled out of Communist Albania by the author and a French friend. The preface tells this story of literary intrigue, and makes the reading of the novella that starts this collection feel more real. I'm now eager to read The Successor which forms the second part of the same story. The other stories in this collection are about autocratic rule in the Ottoman Empire (of which Albania was historically a part) and about the territorial battles between those within and without the Great Wall of China.
