Sinopsis: In Albania, under the long dictatorship of Enver Hoxha, each Albanian citizen had a biografi - literally an account of their suitability as good socialists which was registered by the secret police. An insight in to the post-communist regime of Albania.

Críticas: Extraordinarily haunting ( Daily Telegraph)

Seductively realistic ( Independent on Sunday)

If I had not myself witnessed the lengths to which regimes such as Hoxha's are prepared to go to cheat and deceive, I should have been inclined to dismiss Shapallo's story as fanciful, and Jones as naïve for believing it ( A. M. Daniels, Times Literary Supplement)

Beautifully written, evocative and deft ( Sunday Times)

'A compelling hybrid' ( Jaen Housham, The Guardian)

'Biografi starts big and then zooms in. This is Jones's skill: to draw tiny details that contain the world' ( Katy Guest, Independent)

'An enlightening read' ( Alastair Mabbott, Herald (Glasgow))

A gem of the genre ( New York Times Book Review)

'Curious and compelling' ( Donal O'Donoghue, RTE Guride)

'This is a clever, surreal and mysterious read, certainly worth resuscitating' ( Zoe Strimpel, City A.M.)


Jones proves sly, engaging, worth-reading and even re-reading ( London Review of Books)

Being a truthful writer, Jones sees nothing; neither his heroes nor his villains in black and white. His is a bold inquiry into the way that we construct and repair our communities, and ourselves, with stories old and new ( The Times)

Lloyd Jones gives the tired post-colonial themes of self-reinvention ... a fresh, ingenious twist but his real achievement is bringing life and depth to his characters ( Sunday Telegraph)

Lloyd Jones brings to life the transformative power of fiction ( Sunday Times)

'Biografi leaves you wishing that a real-life Shapallo may still show up' ( Catherine Shoard, Scotsman)
