Description: Set amid the impending chaos of the medieval Balkans, this chilling tour de force by Albania's greatest living writer is at once a superbly realized work of historical fiction and a Kafkaesque parable of the barbarism currently sweeping its author's homeland.

In 1377 the Byzantine empire is crumbling and the Ottoman Turks advancing. Somewhere on the frontier between these powers a mysterious work crew begins to construct a three-arched bridge, undeterred by dire warnings. When the bridge is sabotaged, a suspect in the crimes is found walled up in its foundation. Is his death meant to deter other saboteurs or to appease the spirits of the river? Does it fulfill an ancient prophecy or predict further bloodshed? Resonant with menace and sorrow, The Three-Arched Bridge is as powerful an evocation of a vanished world as The Name of the Rose.
