More About Broken April by Ismail Kadare
 
 
 
Overview
Two destinies intersect in this novel. The first is that of Gjorg, a young mountaineer who has just killed a man in order to avenge the death of his older brother, and who expects to be killed himself in keeping with the Code that regulates life in the highlands. The second is that of a young couple who have come to study the age-old customs, including the blood feud. While the story is set in the early twentieth century, life on the high plateaus of Albania takes us back to the Dark Ages. To the young bride, the shock of this unending cycle of obligatory murder is devastating. The horror becomes personified when she catches sight of Gjorg. That vision of the hapless murderer provokes in her a violent act of revulsion and contrition. Her life will be marked by it always.
