The appointment : a novel by Herta Müller( Book )

From the winner of the IMPAC Award and the Nobel Prize, a fierce novel about a young Romanian woman's discovery of betrayal in the most intimate reaches of her life "I've been summoned. Thursday, ten sharp." Thus begins one day in the life of a young clothing-factory worker during Ceaucescu's totalitarian regime. She has been questioned before; this time, she believes, will be worse. Her crime' Sewing notes into the linings of men's suits bound for Italy. "Marry me," the notes say, with her name and address. Anything to get out of the country. As she rides the tram to her interrogation, her thoughts stray to her friend Lilli, shot trying to flee to Hungary, to her grandparents, deported after her first husband informed on them, to Major Albu, her interrogator, who begins each session with a wet kiss on her fingers, and to Paul, her lover, her one source of trust, despite his constant drunkenness. In her distraction, she misses her stop to find herself on an unfamiliar street. And what she discovers there makes her fear of the appointment pale by comparison. Herta MUller pitilessly renders the humiliating terrors of a crushing regime. Bone-spare and intense, The Appointment confirms her standing as one of Europe's greatest writers
The hunger angel : a novel by Herta Müller( Book )

59 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 1,682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was an icy morning in January 1945 when the patrol came for seventeen-year-old Leo Auberg to deport him to a camp in the Soviet Union. Leo would spend the next five years in a coke processing plant, shoveling coal, lugging bricks, mixing mortar, and battling the relentless calculus of hunger that governed the labor colony: one shovel load of coal is worth one gram of bread. In her new novel, Nobel laureate Herta Müller calls upon her unique combination of poetic intensity and dispassionate precision to conjure the distorted world of the labor camp in all its physical and moral absurdity. She has given Leo the language to express the inexpressible, as hunger sharpens his senses into an acuity that is both hallucinatory and profound. In scene after disorienting scene, the most ordinary objects accrue tender poignancy as they acquire new purpose - a gramophone box serves as a suitcase, a handkerchief becomes a talisman, an enormous piece of casing pipe functions as a lovers' trysting place. The heart is reduced to a pump, the breath mechanized to the rhythm of a swinging shovel, and coal, sand, and snow have a will of their own. Hunger becomes an insatiable angel who haunts the camp, but also a bare-knuckled sparring partner, delivering blows that keep Leo feeling the rawest connection to life

The fox was ever the hunter : a novel by Herta Müller( Book )

54 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 1,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An early masterpiece from the winner of the Nobel Prize hailed as the laureate of life under totalitarianism. Romania--the last months of the Ceausescu regime. Adina is a young schoolteacher. Paul is a musician. Clara works in a wire factory. Pavel is Clara's lover. But one of them works for the secret police and is reporting on all of the group. One day Adina returns home to discover that her fox fur rug has had its tail cut off. On another occasion it's the hindleg. Then a foreleg. The mutilated fur is a sign that she is being tracked by the secret police--the fox was ever the hunter. Images of photographic precision combine into a kaleidoscope of terror as Adina and her friends struggle to keep mind and body intact in a world pervaded by complicity and permeated with fear, where it's hard to tell victim from perpetrator. In The Fox Was Always a Hunter, Herta Müller once again uses language that displays the "concentration of poetry and the frankness of prose"--As the Swedish Academy noted upon awarding her the Nobel Prize--to create a hauntingly cinematic portrayal of the corruption of the soul under totalitarianism"--

Reisende auf einem Bein by Herta Müller( Book )

41 editions published between 1989 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 417 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nach ihrer Ausreise aus dem Rumänien Ceauçescus könnte für Irene ein neues Leben im Westberlin der späten 80er Jahre beginnen. Aber innerlich ist sie weder ganz abgereist, noch ist sie endgültig im Neuen angekommen. Sie hat die alte Heimat verloren und keine neue gewonnen, die neue bleibt verschlossen: "In dem anderen Land", sagte Irene, "hab ich verstanden, was die Menschen so kaputtmacht. Die Gründe lagen auf der Hand. - Und hier", sagte Irene, "Ich kann sie nicht sehen. Es tut weh, täglich die Gründe nicht zu sehn." Im neuen Land tragen die Dinge Namen, die nicht zu ihnen passen, zersplittert die Welt in unzählige Detailbeobachtungen, die sie orientierungslos und handlungsunfähig zurücklassen. Einsam durchstreift sie Bahnhofslandschaften und Durchgangsorte, auch in ihren Beziehungen mit Männern bleibt sie innerlich allein. "Reisende auf einem Bein", erstmals erschienen 1989, ist der erste Prosaband Herta Müllers nach ihrer Übersiedelung aus Rumänien nach Berlin: eine bewegende Geschichte von Ferne und Nähe, Abreise und Ankunft - und der Leere dazwischen, in der wir schmerzhaft uns selbst spüren

'Hunger und Seide' enthält Herta Müllers Essays aus den Jahren von 1990 bis 1995, also den Zusammenbruch des Sozialismus und das Entstehen neuer kurzlebiger Utopien: 'Wenn Utopien, während sie ausgedacht und aufgeschrieben werden, von einem Satz zum anderen auch nur einen Augenblick in einem einzigen Menschen lachen, essen, gehen oder schlafen müssten, gäbe es keine.'

'Ein Satz von Herta Müller kann einen Roman ersetzen' - die Worte von Verena Auffermann (Süddeutsche Zeitung) charakterisieren auch die Kraft dieser Essays.
