HERTA MÜLLER

NOVELIST & NOBEL LAUREATE

Born in Romania during the Ceausescu regime, Herta Müller’s formative years laid down an extraordinary bedrock that was to inspire the dystopian novels for which she is known. Reminiscent of her fellow Nobel Laureate Doris Lessing, Müller is a rare writer in a great many ways – not least because she has remained true to herself and her craft. In awarding a Gold Medal for Human Achievement to Mrs. Müller, ISF celebrates her extraordinarily original body of work.
