Juxtaposing reality and fantasy, nightmares and dark laughter, NADIRS is a collection of largely autobiographical stories based on Herta Muller's childhood in the Romanian countryside. The individual tales reveal a chid's often nightmarish impression of life in her village. Seamlessly mixing reality with dream-like images, they brilliantly convey the inner, troubled life of a child and at the same time capture the violence and corruption of life in an oppressive state. 122p.
