Descripción

A true UK first edition / first printing, with a number '1' on the copyright page. A flawless copy of this highly-original novel about a car crash on the autobahn in Vienna, which triggers a disturbing investigation. No-one can explain how the crash happened. Witnesses become vague and mystical when describing the lovers who died in the 'accident'. Set against the backdrop of the war in the Balkans, this is a brilliant exploration of war, obsession and our ability to 'unsee' the obvious. By Albania's best-known author, winner of the first International Booker Prize. Never read. Not price-clipped, and with no inscriptions or marks of any kind. An absolutely perfect copy. We protect all our books with a removable plastic cover, and send them with care. N° de ref. de la librería 000587

Sinopsis:

On the autobahn in Vienna a taxi leaves the carriageway and strikes the crash barrier, flinging its male and female passengers out of its back doors as it spins through the air. The driver cannot explain why he lost control; he only says that the mysterious couple in the back seat seemed to be about to kiss ...Set against the tumultuous backdrop of war and its aftermath in the Balkans, The Accident intimately documents an affair between two people caught in each other's webs. The investigation into their deaths uncovers a mutually destructive obsession that mirrors the conflicts of the region. A destabilising mixture of vivid hallucination and cold reality, Ismail Kadare's new novel is a bold and fascinating departure.
