Description - The Palace Of Dreams by Ismail Kadare

At the heart of the Sultan s vast but fragile empire stands the mysterious Palace of Dreams- the most secret and powerful Ministry ever invented. Its task is to scour every town, village and hamlet to collect the citizens dreams, then to sift, sort and classify them, and ultimately to interpret them, in order to identify the master-dreams that will provide the clues to the Empire s destinies and those of its Monarch. An entire nation s consciousness is thus tapped into and meticulously laid bare in the form of images and symbols of the dreaming mind. Kadare s Palace of Dreams stands as the symbol of the thought-police who have, through history, been the most effective instruments of oppression at the service of dictators.

Author Biography - Ismail Kadare

Ismail Kadare, born in 1936 in the mountain town of Gjirokaster, near the Greek border, is Albania's best-known poet and novelist. Since the appearance of The General of the Dead Army in 1965, Kadare has published scores of stories and novels that make up a panorama of Albanian history linked by a constant meditation on the nature and human consequences of dictatorship. His works brought him into frequent conflict with the authorities from 1945 to 1985. In 1990 he sought political asylum in France, and now divides his time between Paris and Tirana. He is the winner of the first ever Man Booker International Prize.
