Description: Ismail Kadare's novel of ancient Egypt is a work that is at once historical fiction and a timeless exploration of the horror of untrammeled state power.

It is 2600 B.C. The pharaoh Cheops hesitates to order the construction of a pyramid in his honor. But his court sages tell him that such a monument is essential: it keeps the people content by oppressing them utterly. It is the pillar that holds power aloft. If it wavers, everything collapses.

And so the greatest pyramid begins to rise, destroying dozens of lives beneath each of its stones, generating conspiracies that necessitate ruthless purges and fantastic tortures. As the inexorable narrative unfolds, The Pyramid reveals itself as a brilliant fable, worthy of Borges, as pitiless and serene as the monstrous object at its center.
