Ben Blush's post about Kadare that sparked his family's reaction
Ismail Kadare's daughter, Besiana, has spoken on behalf of the family and her father, the writer Ismail Kadare, after an interview published by Ben Blushi. Besiana Kadare says that what was an ordinary conversation was posted as an interview without Kadare's knowledge.
Full reaction of Besiana Kadare:
Since a lot of friends and acquaintances have asked me these days if Kadareja really gave an interview to Ben Blushi, I want to clarify publicly that Ben Blushi, in fact, created an interview, without my knowledge, based on a conversation to private meetings that happened by chance in a cafe with Kadarene and his companion, A. Bardhyli.
Some time later, Ben Blushi published the conversation in the form of an "interview", without the interlocutor's consent, thus abusing the trust that was granted to him, and with the strange "courage" that he is revealing unknown secrets to the Albanian public. This gesture is as immoral as it is illegal.
Unfortunately, it has become practical now that all kinds of people hope to make publicity, trying to exploit Kadare's figure and contact with him in different ways. Considering my father's advanced age, any attempt of this kind is truly pitiful.
