Total langweilig - oder für mich zu kompliziert? ( )
  etides | Jan 18, 2010 |
When Herta Mueller was awarded the Nobel prize 2009 for literature I decided to give her another try. During my stay in Germany I read a lot of German literature and although Mueller isn't German, her work is amply available there. My first attempt, however, (can't remember which novel it was) was frustrated by her writing style; for lack of the proper English idiom I'd call it the opposite of smooth.
Currently (2009), I find Der Fuchs interesting, though it isn't a page turner. Mueller requires concentrated reading but then provides some poetic images (like mice using children's first teeth to pave their homes) and apparently simple sketches of living with a dictator, whose picture features in the newspaper every day.
