26 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Herta Müllers Essays aus den Jahren von 1990 bis 1995 spiegeln unmittelbar den Zusammenbruch des Sozialismus, die soeben vollzogene deutsche Wiedervereinigung und das Entstehen neuer kurzlebiger Utopien. Wenn Herta Müller scharfsichtig über weltweite Migration schreibt und über rechtsradikale Gewalt im Deutschland der frühen 1990er Jahre, hat ihr Buch höchste Aktualität. Wahrheit und Lüge, Aufrichtigkeit und Betrug, Macht und Widerstand in der rumänischen Diktatur - und in allen Diktaturen -, das sind die großen Themen der mit dem Literaturnobelpreis ausgezeichneten Autorin."--Page 2

The hunger angel : a novel by Herta Müller( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 274 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

60 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Herta Müller stellt sich die Frage nach ihrem eigenen Schreiben, seine politischen und geschichtlichen Bedingungen. Die rumänische Diktatur unter Ceausescu: hier wuchs die Autorin auf, hier bildete sich, bis zu ihrer Übersiedlung nach Berlin, ihr sprachliches und politisches Bewu(Sb(Btsein. Und die Sprache steht im Mittelpunkt all ihrer Überlegungen: die Sprache als Instrument der Herrschaft und Unterdrückung, die Sprache aber auch als Möglichkeit des Widerstands und der Selbstbehauptung gegenüber der totalitären Macht. Zu dieser Reflexion zählen aber genauso Erinnerungen an die Kindheit und an die Familie, in der diese deutsche Sprache gesprochen wurde. So entsteht das eindrucksvolle, scharf konturierte Bild einer Lebenserfahrung unter absoluter Herrschaft, der Herta Müller mit dem konsequenten Weg in die Literatur antwortete
