About the Author: Herta Müller

Herta Müller was born in Niţchidorf, Timiş County, Romania, the daughter of Swabian farmers. Her family was part of Romania's German minority and her mother was deported to a labour camp in the Soviet Union after World War II.

She read German studies and Romanian literature at Timişoara University. In 1976, Müller began working as a translator for an engineering company, but in 1979 was dismissed for her refusal to cooperate with the Securitate, the Communist regime's secret police. Initially, she made a living by teaching kindergarten and giving private German lessons.

Her first book was published in Romania (in German) in 1982, and appeared only in a censored version, as with most publications of the time.

In 1987, Müller left for Germany with her husband, novelist Richard Wagner. Over the following years she received many lectureships at universities in Germany and abroad.

In 1995 Müller was awarded membership to the German Academy for Writing and Poetry, and other positions followed. In 1997 she withdrew from the PEN centre of Germany in protest of its merge with the former German Democratic Republic branch.

The Swedish Academy awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Literature to Müller, "who, with the concentration of poetry and the frankness of prose, depicts the landscape of the dispossessed".

She currently lives in Berlin, Germany.

Una joven que trabaja en una fábrica de ropa durante la dictadura de Ceausescu ha sido citada para un interrogatorio. Ya había pasado por este trance en otras ocasiones, pero sabe que esta vez será peor. ¿Su crimen? Coser notas en los forros de los trajes de caballero que se venderán en Italia. «Cásate conmigo», dice la nota, con su nombre y dirección. Sería capaz de cualquier cosa con tal de salir del país. En el tranvía que la lleva a su interrogatorio, sus pensamientos se pierden en el recuerdo de toda la gente que ya no está.
Una vez más, la magistral pluma de Herta Müller, Premio Nobel de Literatura, nos desvela los horrores de la opresión que ella misma padeció.
