About Herta Müller

Müller, one of Europe’s foremost contemporary writers, is one of only twelve women ever to win the Nobel Prize in Literature; she is best known for her novels The Land of Green Plums (‘Herztier’ in the original), a story of the terror experienced by herself and her writer friends in communist Romania, and The Hunger Angel (‘Atemschaukel’), an account of life in a Soviet gulag where many Romanian-Germans, including Müller’s own mother, were deported after the Second World War. Her first visit to Swansea, just a few years after her move to the West, was restorative for her; she said ‘I felt very comfortable at the University; comfortable too in the soft landscape with its warm colours and rugged coastline’.
