The Word from Stockholm

The Appointment CoverThe 2009 Nobel Prize in Literature has been awarded to Herta Müller, the Romanian-born German novelist. We are, sadly, unfamiliar with her work, which frequently dealt with the experience of totalitarian oppression and exile. Her novel, The Land of Green Plums, a tale of youth corroded by the monstrosities of Ceausescu’s police state, is issued by Northwestern University Press. Other works include The Appointment.
