BOOK CLUB

The Land of Green Plums by Herta Mueller

Published in 1994, The Land of Green Plums is perhaps Müller’s best-known work. The story portrays four young people living in a totalitarian police state under the Soviet-imposed communist dictatorship in Romania, ending with their emigration to Germany. The narrator is an unidentified young woman belonging to the German minority.

After its publication in German and its translation into Dutch, the novel received moderate attention, but it gained an international audience when the English translation by Michael Hofmann was published in 1996. In 1998 this translation won the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, the largest prize given for a single work of fiction published in English. Following the announcement of the 2009 Nobel Prize in Literature for Herta Müller, The Land of Green Plums entered the bestseller list on Amazon.com.
