Our December Author: Ismail Kadare

Not the most complete Wikipedia biography for Ismail Kadare (The Successor) but it's a start, with a bit more from the BBC here. His English translator weighs in on his translation of a (French) translation. For a taste of the controversy surrounding the author, try this essay. I suspect there may be more interviews available in French, but here's one from the Times Online.

Bonus New Yorker short story here.
