The Fox Was Ever the Hunter

The Fox Was Ever the Hunter

Herta Müller

Set in Romania during the last days of the Ceausescu regime, this deeply moving novel is underpinned by images of the ever-present menace and fear, humiliation and hopelessness. The characters emerge tentatively from the rubble of this oppression: Adina, a teacher, and her friend Clara, an engineer working in a factory. When Clara falls in love with an officer working for the secret police who is monitoring the activities of Adina and a group of young musicians, the women’s friendship disintegrates; a fox fur in Adina’s apartment becomes the symbol of the threat they are all under.
