These books don’t fit together

On my trip through Albania, I saw some small bookshops in the parks which sold what looked like second-hand books. Most of them were in Albanian, and the only English titles were often textbooks or encyclopedias. Very old ones, usually.

The assortment of different books was sometimes very peculiar, for example when works by Adolf Hitler were next to those by Paulo Coelho, Sigmund Freud and (maybe more fittingly) by Donald Trump.

Mein Kampf CoelhoVolume 14 of a work by or about Stalin was placed next to the Lohengrin saga.

Lohengrin Stalin

About Andreas Moser

Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a journalist, a spy or a hobo.
