More About The Passport by Herta Muller; Martin Chalmers; Paul Bailey
 
 
 
Overview
From the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature 2009
The Passport is a beautiful, haunting novel whose subject is a German village in Romania caught between the stifling hopelessness of Ceausescu's 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 Muller describes with poetic attention the dreams and superstitions, conflicts and oppression of a forgotten region, the Banat, in the Danube Plain. In sparse, lyrical language, Herta Muller captures the forlorn plight of a trapped people.
This edition is translated by Martin Chalmers, with a new foreword by Paul Bailey."
