HertaMuller

Herta Müller (2009)


Herta Müller is a Romanian-born German novelist who became famous for her first work, Niederungen, when an uncensored edition of the book was published in Germany in 1984. She faced threats and interrogations for her criticisms of the Ceauşescu dictatorship, and in 1987 she emigrated to Germany. Her Nobel prize-winning novel Atemschaukel (Everything I Possess I Carry With Me) is about the deportation of the Romanian-German minority to the Soviet Union.

Fun Fact: Herta Müller worked as a translator and teacher before becoming a world-renowned author.
