How To Be a Kosovan Bride

Synopsis

How to be a Kosovan Bride opens up something entirely new to the reader: the history, culture and stories of one of the newest countries in the world. It weaves together Albanian folktale, stories of Kosovan experience of the war in 1999 and a look into the lives of modern-day Kosovan women.

The dark undercurrent of Albanian blood feuds underpins a story about the impact of war and the way that new life can emerge from darkness.

It is characterised by striking imagery and daring form.

Praise for this Book

‘At once forensic and elegiac, How To Be a Kosovan Bride tells its stories with exquisite subtlety and power.’ —Livi Michael
