How to be a Kosovan Bride opens up something entirely new to the reader: the history, culture and stories of one of the newest countries in the world. It weaves together Albanian folktale, stories of Kosovan experience of the war in 1999 and a look into the lives of modern-day Kosovan women.
The dark undercurrent of Albanian blood feuds underpins a story about the impact of war and the way that new life can emerge from darkness.
It is characterised by striking imagery and daring form.
