de Lloyd Jones (Autor)
Detalhes da Obra
Biografi de Lloyd Jones
"In 1991 Lloyd Jones, bestselling author of Mister Pip, travelled through Albania. It was six years since the death of the dictator, Enver Hoxha, but Albania was still one of the most isolated and secretive societies on the planet. Under Hoxha, all Albanian citizens had their own biografi, a file that was maintained (and often falsified) by the secret police. Jones heard rumours of a village dentist who, resembling Hoxha in looks and build, had been forced to give up his identity and undergo extensive plastic surgery to become the dictator' s double. What would it take to remove a man from his own identity and give him a new one? What kind of life would this man live now? Who would he be? In Biografi, Jones intertwines a fictional account of Petar Schapallo, the man with the fabricated identity, with a travelogue of great insight into life in Albania after the fall of Hoxhas regime."--Provided by publisher.
