i really liked this book. it had been on my shelf for a long time. it's kadare's take on an incident that did happen, though not in albania, in yugoslavia, i think. about two irish scholars who travel with a new 'tape recording machine' to study the epic poems, looking for a trace back to homer's poems. the albanian (paranoid) gov't assumes they are spys.
it's so well written, i really felt transported to this strange world of albania in the 1930s. maybe it helped that i read it while in the strange world of bulgaria (also slavs).
