An old woman is awoken in the dead of night by knocks at her front door. The woman opens it to find her daughter, Doruntine, standing there alone in the darkness. She has been brought home from a distant land by a mysterious rider she claims is her brother Konstandin. But unbeknownst to her, Konstandin has been dead for years. What follows is chain of events which plunges a medieval village into fear and mistrust. Who is the ghost rider?

Born in 1936, Ismail Kadare is Albania's best-known poet and
novelist. Translations of his novels have appeared in more than forty
countries. In 2005
he was awarded the first Man Booker International
Prize for 'a body of work
written by an author who has had a truly global impact'. He is the recipient of
the highly prestigious 2009 Principe de Asturias de las Letras in Spain.

His fiction offers invaluable insights into life under tyranny - his historical allegories point both to the grand themes and small details that make up life in a restrictive environment. He is a great writer, by any nation's standards.
