From the winner of the 2009 Nobel Prize in Literature!'A swift, stinging narrative, fable-like in its stoic concision and painterly detail.'The Philadelphia InquirerThe Passport is a beautiful, haunting novel whose subject is a German village in Romania caught between the stifling hopelessness of Ceausescus dictatorship and the glittering temptations of the West. Stories from the past are woven together with the problems Windisch, the village miller, faces after he applies for permission to migrate to West Germany. Herta Mller (Herta Mueller) describes with poetic attention the dreams and superstitions, conflicts and oppression of a forgotten region, the Banat, in the Danube Plain. In sparse, poetic language, Muller captures the forlorn plight of a trapped people. This 1989 Serpent's Tail Paperback is in Near Mint condition.
