About the author
In a dictatorship that eroded all humanity, resistance was hopeless. An alcoholic, he is seen to lament a lost Romanian idyll of plum brandy, strudel pastry and beer-swilling Herrenvolk.
Nazi Romania had much in common with Stalinist Romania, not least a dewy-eyed nationalism.

Muller's mother was caught up in the arrests and deported as a "counter-revolutionary".
