Romanian-Born Herta Müller Wins the Nobel Prize in Literature
"“Niederungen” and other early works depicted life in a small village and the repression faced by its denizens. Her later novels, including “The Land of Green Plums” and “The Appointment,” approach allegory as they graphically portray the brutality suffered by modest people leaving under totalitarianism."
"The Passport," "The Land of Green Plums," "Traveling on One Leg" and "The Appointment" have been translated from German into English, French and Spanish.
