About Jiri Kajane

Jiri Kajane was raised in Kruje, Albania. His satirical drama, Neser Perdite (Tomorrow, Every Day), received great acclaim in a singular 1981 performance before being banned by the Albanian Ministry of Culture. Due to Kajane’s precarious standing before the revolution, his work has never been published in his home country, but his stories have appeared in translation in many American journals.

An intriguing collection of short fiction with an equally intriguing backstory:

The petty cons perpetrated by the protagonists would be adequate entertainment on their own, but read in the light of full disclosure, the stories are all the better.
