About the Author

The author of seven poetry collections, Luljeta Lleshanaku was born in Elbasan, Albania, in 1968, and grew up under house arrest during Enver Hoxha's Stalinist regime. She has worked as a teacher, literary magazine editor, journalist, screenwriter, and currently is the research director at the Institute of Studies of Communist Genocide in Albania.

Reviews

Lleshanaku does not dwell on the harsh past and the brutal climate she knew as a child. Rather, she celebrates the variety of new experience, filling her verse with powerful imagery and stark, surprising visions.
Lleshanaku's verse offers allegory with a twist, rationality tinged with romance that makes no promise of deliverance.--Peter Moysaenko
[H]er gentle poems are subtle and rarely polemical, as they dwell on her past... in the end, we feel blessed that Ms. Lleshanaku has invited us to 'the takeoffs and landings/on the runway of her soul.'--Dana Jennings
She is a love poet.... She makes explicit what it means to live in a violent and corrupt public world which penetrates privacy and betrays every intimacy.--Allen Grossman
