The National Examiner has a story about Rubena Sukaj, an Albanian volleyball player, now playing in the US.
Thanks again to Stephen Tanghe who drew my attention to a couple of pieces from the New Yorker. The first is a short story by Kadare, 'The Albanian Writers' Union as Mirrored by a Woman', and the second is an interview with Kadare.
Stephen also supplied a link to a series of articles on Albania from the Atlantic Monthly, published over a thirty year period from 1963-1993. Unfortunately, a subscription is required to view these articles, but local libraries may have access.
Finally, Paddie Holdsworth sent me a piece on Kruja that she wrote for the Yorkshire Gazette & Herald.
