  • "The main goal of these three fables ... is to transmit a message about freedom, in the sense that to write truthfully is to set something free. In this book Kadare has set Kosovo, the battle, the myth, free from the chains of untruth"

    London Review of Books
  • "The bridge is a foreboding, an omen, a threat. It is a bridge over which Asia will invade Europe and the future will invade the past. Kadare, an Albanian, has used the materials at hand to become one of Europe's great writers"

    Los Angeles Times
  • "An utterly captivating yarn: strange, vivid, ominous, macabre and wise"

    New York Times
