Enver Hoxha, coming soon in a Barnes & Nobles near you!

A e ka lexuar njeri kete librin ketu?




I can't resist. Anyone who has published a fictionalized account of the life of Enver Hoxha, the late, unlamented, tyrannical, Red Chinese-supporting dictator of Albania, wins my heart. Former Boston Herald columnist Peter Lucas has done just that. The story is told through the eyes of Tom Stevens, a bartender at the Arch Street Tavern who joins the wartime CIA and helps Hoxha fight the Nazis. Love, intrigue, and a notorious police state ensue.


Special bonus for readers of this column: The Massachusetts Albanian American Society invites you to a book party on April 25 at 6 p.m. at the Vlora restaurant on Boylston Street. Yes, expect Albanian cuisine and yes, expect to see figures from the Albanian-American community, such as ex-WBUR uberboss Jane Christo and Hollywood director Stan Dragoti, perhaps best known for his tumultuous marriage to 1970s supermodel Cheryl Tiegs

What the Dickens indeed, says Mrroklla! smiley

What the Fan Noli too, if I may!
