商品の説明

内容紹介

In September 1943, German soldiers advance on the ancient gates of Gjirokaster, Albania. It is the first step in a carefully planned invasion. But once at the mouth of the city, the troops are taken aback by a surprising act of rebellion that leaves the citizens fearful of a bloody counter-attack. Soon rumours circulate, in cafes, houses and alleyways, that the Nazi Colonel in command of the German Army was once a school acquaintance of a local dignitary, Doctor Gurameto. In the town square, Colonel von Schwabe greets his former classmate warmly; in return, Doctor Gurameto invites him to dinner. The very next day, the Colonel and his army disappear from the city. The dinner at Gurameto's house changes the course of events in twentieth-century Europe. But as the citizens celebrate their hero, a conspiracy surfaces which leads some to place Gurameto - and the stone city - at the heart of a plot to undermine Socialism. Enigmatic and compelling, The Fall of the Stone City displays Ismail Kadare at the height of his considerable powers.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Historic and humerous. Haunting and horrific. 2014/1/18
投稿者 Timothy K. Mosman - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
This was a very haunting read. I was never really certain where I was in this story; the characters seemed to loop back and meet themselves at different parts of the story which gave it a nightmarish feel. It dealt with a time and place and piece of history I was not familiar with but came away with a good idea of the upheaval experienced in the Balkins near the end of World War II and the communist takeover in Albania. What I enjoyed most was the different perspectives that were given from the onlookers; how the briefest observation of an event, even the most ridiculous, can set the myth and, ever after, make the truth hard to find.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Good Narration 2013/12/10

historical novel as it is my favorite especially NAZI related. Also I give importance to the narration. I got fascinated when I read his "General of the Dead Army". in fact he keeps readers on a tender hook with his imagination about the two doctors. This novel stands apart among his other novels.

5つ星のうち 5.0 The Fall of the Stone City is a first-rate literary novel 2013/3/30
投稿者 Jonathan Kleinbard - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
This latest novel by Ismail Kadare is one of his best and certainly an improvement over The Accident. It covers two dreadful periods of Albanian history. The writing is fluent, funny at times, horrific at others.

5つ星のうち 5.0 doctor's dinner dooms duo 2013/6/25
投稿者 Bob Newman - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
I wonder if Ismail Kadare is capable of writing a bad book. Mixing myth, allegory, history,and a kind of wry humor, he has produced an amazing genre over the years as yet unrewarded by the Nobel Prize committee, who often choose writers half as talented. If his work seems dark and somehow menacing, like a sudden view of an approaching storm, Albania's fate might have something to do with it. Emerging from centuries of Ottoman rule in 1912, this small country went through monarchy, a few years of a chaotic republic, more monarchy by a self-proclaimed king, Italian occupation, German occupation, a devastating civil war at the same time as war against the occupiers, and 47 years of Communist dictatorship, before finally being cast up unprepared on the beach of modern Europe in 1991.

Enver Hoxha, the ultimate victor in the WW II years in Albania, wrote the history of those times and you had to swallow it on pain of your life. But what really went on in that time of destruction and chaos ? Nobody inside really knows what goes on in totalitarian societies or in the time of a war involving Italians, Germans, Communists, royalists, nationalists, and even the Western allies. Everything is either confused or secret, so truth (or even a semblance of truth) disappears. Magical realist explanations of the times are as good as any---maybe they are explanations for things that have no explanation. Garcia-Marquez wrote a magnificent portrayal of dictatorship and tyranny in "The Autumn of the Patriarch"; Kadare has written a different, but equally strong book here. The Germans are about to occupy Gjirokaster (the stone city) and Albania. Two doctors in town have different takes on the event. One is closer to Germany, the other to Italy. The former gives a dinner---or does he? His old school friend from Germany turns out to be the invading commander---or does he ? Maybe he's even dead. Later, in 1953, when the Communists are in power, and Stalin is in his last days, a high powered investigation of events ten years before takes place due to the infamous "Doctors' Plot" in the USSR.. Why did the doctors act as they did ? Can we get to the bottom of this ? Can you get to the bottom of anything in history ? Does it all have to do with ghosts of the past that in Albania, as in Faulkner's Mississippi, never disappear ? Murky, full of lies, contradictions and irony, fables and propaganda, even the psychology of torturers and the tortured, this is another tour de force by one of the world's greatest living writers. Read it.
