Ten Conversations with Albanians is  a chronicle of the time in which Albanians are living. It is an effort to rediscover them as individuals and as a society who experienced life under a dictatorship and now struggles to fit into a free and democratic Europe.


The book is aimed to readers who would like to know about the country and from their own perspective of the Albanians themselves. What makes them happy? What bothers them? What moves them? Do they feel fulfilled and in harmony with the world? What do they value? What do they want to do with their lives?

For her poetry debut she has received the MiGJENI Award of the Albanian Ministry of Culture (2008). Ten conversations with Albanians was first published in 2017 in Albanian and English.
