From the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, 2009. 'Just as the father in the house in which we live is our father, so Comrade Nicolae Ceausecu is the father of our country. And just as the mother in the house in which we live is our mother, so Comrade Elena Ceausecu is the mother of our country. Comrade Nicolae Ceausecu is the father of our children. All the children love comrade Nicolae and comrade Elena, because they are their parents.' THE PASSPORT is a beautiful, haunting novel whose subject is a German village in Romania caught between the stifling hopelessness of Ceausecu's dictatorship and the glittering temptations of the West. Stories from the past are woven together with the problems Windisch, the village miller, faces after he applies for permission to migrate to West Germany. Herta Muller describes with poetic attention to the dreams and superstitions, conflicts and oppression of a forgotten region, the Banat, in the Danube Plain. In sparse, poetic language, Herta Muller captures the forlorn plight of a trapped people.

Born in Romania in 1953, Herta M�ller lost her job as a teacher and suffered repeated threats after refusing to cooperate with Ceausescu's Secret Police. She succeeded in emigrating in 1987 and now lives in Berlin. The recipient of the European Literature Prize, she has also won the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award for her previous novel, The Land of Green Plums. M�ller was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2009.

Esther Kinskyis a poet, writer, and translator working in German, Polish, Russian and English.Martin Chalmers is a Berlin-based translator from Glasgow. He has translated some of the best-known German-language writers, including Herta Mller, Elfriede Jelinek, and Hans Magnus Enzensberger.
