Nobel-winner Herta Müller has written a dazzling new gay novel. Does it matter that she's heterosexual?
"This week sees the publication of “The Hunger Angel,” by the Romanian-born German author Herta Müller. It’s her first novel to appear in English since she won the Nobel Prize three years ago, and the book, set in a Soviet labor camp in the years after World War II, arrives in America trailing behind it a passel of rave reviews in the European press: a masterpiece, they say, to be put next to Solzhenitsyn or Primo Levi"
The hunger angel : a novel / Herta Müller ; translated by Philip Boehm. Original title: Atemschaukel. New York : Henry Holt and Co., 2012.
