2009 Nobel Prize for Literature

This year's Nobel Prize for Literature was won by Herta Müller, a Romanian-born German novelist and poet. Born in 1953, Müller grew up in Romania as a member of the German-speaking minority there. She was able to emigrate to West Berlin with her husband in 1987 but much of her work concerns the oppressive culture in Romania under Nicolai Ceausescu.

Here's a list of some of her work:

The Appointment

The Land of Green Plums



Traveling on One Leg
