About the Book

Thus, surely we can say that in prose he is serious, productive and extremely narrative. I attentively read the three novels with which he will be present to the numerous readers, in his hometown, in Albania, Kosovo and further, in Diaspore, Canada, where he currently lives. They are entitled: “In betwee two centuries” “Plan for eviction” and “Sami”. The three of them are narrated in a typical Albanian setting and in the shape of a very beautiful bridge not only do they naturally connect places but also they give you the feeling of being a participant of the events, living the dramas and feeling the emotions of the characters. The novels have been placed in the Albanian landscape, but have been written in Toronto.
