Herta Müller wins Nobel Prize. . .

Another writer to add to my growing pile of international writers to read. Librarians will be familiar with her as she won the 1998 IMPAC Dublin Literary Award for The Land of Green Plums, available in English translation from Northwestern University Press as is Traveling on One Leg.
The best information on this author and her books is to be found at the Literary Saloon - which by watching the betting odds and doing some good sleuthing, actually predicted the winner yesterday. See also this post.
