As spring arrives in the Albanian mountain town of B, some strange things are emerging in the thaw. Bank robbers strike the National Bank. Old terrors are dredged up from the shipwreck of history. And ultra-explosive state secrets are threatening to flood the entire nation. Mark, an artist, finds the peaceful rhythms of his life turned upside down by ancient love and modern barbarism and by the particular brutality of a country surprised and divided by its new freedom.

This short book explores the time in post Russian Albania when there is a vacuum in national political direction. Do Albanians revert to the 'old ways' or accept the need for a new cultural paradigm. Although well written it can be confusing at times but when all is said and done it provides a good start line for an initial incursion into Albanian culture through one of its best known authors. If you've never read anything by an Albanian writer this may work for you.
