About the Book

Zodiac is a bilingual sequence of poems loosely organized around the signs of the zodiac, which considers the turn of the millennium, the history of Albania and the Adriatic region, and the author's place in the universe as he confronts his own mortality and his decision to remain in his homeland after the fall of communism.

Born in Durrës, Albania, in 1949, Moikom Zeqo is the author of more than a dozen books of poetry and fiction, as well as numerous monographs on Albanian history, literature, and culture. He served as Albania's minister of culture and directed the National Historical Museum in Tirana.
