More About The Fox Was Ever the Hunter by Herta Muller; Philip Boehm
 
 
 
Overview

From the winner of the Nobel Prize hailed as the laureate of life under totalitarianism, a haunting early novel of surveillance and paranoia

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 the rest 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. And once again, Herta Muller 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."
