Matthew Rosen is an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Ohio University.
"This is a story of desires, aspirations, and visions, as well as the precarity and violence of post-socialist late-capitalism, located in the seemingly profane choice—what to translate and publish next, and why. As such, it is a compelling ethnography of how ideas move about through literary and social cross-referencing, actions taken, and meanings attributed to physical and imagined social, political, and economic locations, spaces, and practices."
—Nita Luci, author of The Politics of Remembrance and Belonging: Life Histories of Albanian Women in Kosova
"This book is a pioneering contribution to literary ethnography, literary history, and the role of literature in contemporary Albania."
—Nataša Gregorič Bon, Institute of Anthropological and Spatial Studies, Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts
