Juxtaposing reality and fantasy, nightmares and dark laughter, "Nadirs" is a collection of largely autobiographical stories based on Herta Muller's childhood in the Romanian countryside. The individual tales reveal a child's often nightmarish impressions of life in her village. Seamlessly mixing reality with dream-like images, they brilliantly convey the inner, troubled life of a child and at the same time capture the violence and corruption of life under an oppressive state.
Herta Muller , winner of the 2009 Nobel Prize in Literature, has been one of the most prolific and acclaimed German-language writers of the last two decades. Born in 1953 in the Banat, a German-language region of Romania, she emigrated to West Berlin in 1987 and currently lives in Berlin, Germany. Sieglinde Lug is a professor emerita of German and comparative literature at the University of Denver, USA.
"A work of striking originality and power."-Kirkus Reviews "Muller, who won the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award for The Land of Green Plums, is considered one of the most gifted contemporary German-language writers, a claim this newly translated collection of stories would seem to prove. Once again, Muller takes us back to Communist Romania. But unlike her previous work, Nadirs is a very personal book, as much about Muller's own family sagas as it is about the inescapable scares of communism.... Originally published in German ten years ago, this book was well worth the wait; it is an important achievement in contemporary Eastern European literature"-Library Journal "The 15 stories are melodious but sober in tone, echoing an overwhelmingly oppressive social atmosphere. It's bluntly stated that boys are injured in local factories and mothers' lives are unrelentingly harsh; meanwhile, Muller imbues a trip to the barber or a ride on the intervillage bus with colorful, surreal twists.... Most of these impressionistic pieces are bursting with breathtaking, earthy details."-Publishers Weekly "The sudden appearance of words in unfamiliar semantic contexts turns her texts into sensual landscapes of beauty and pain. The translator, Sieglinde Lug, has accomplished this in a highly convincing manner and is able to give the reader a taste of Muller's unique language."-Irena E. Furhoff, International Fiction Review"
