    Possesses a narrative patterning that is strikingly beautiful There s compression, too, and suspense, though it s not a mystery or thriller It s character driven so there s no real plot Yet the vivid picture Herta M ller paints of Communist Romania under dictator Nicolae Ceau escu is an absolute horror I mean, the inanity of harassing perfectly harmless people and interrogating them and humiliating them for no purpose other than to instill...
