How can we sum up such a huge work as The golden fleece ? Five centuries of the tormented history of the Balkans are gathered into a fantasmagoric literature that tells the rise and fall of a powerful Serbian family of Aromanian origins : a saga in seven books, fed by the mythology that always go with the wanderings of this people and which makes fun of the fata morganas of the business society. We live into the scenes many different feelings from drama to comedy, the history of the Balkans : Serbs revolts, Ottomans' conquests, the incredible death of Suleiman the Magnificent, the creation of Yugoslavia, the wars, the negociations, the betrayals, the migrations, all the small stories that make History. Three of the seven books have been translated in French, but no translation exists in English, unfortunately.
