“Seldom has a love drama been told with such wit and elegance.” FAZ

Harriet, half-Indian and an astrophysicist, is living happily together with her partner Ash and his son. But then Ash goes and has a car accident with, of all people, the wife of Harriet’s teenage sweetheart – and Peter, the man she thought she had long since forgotten, comes back into her life. A supposedly harmless love affair begins, and honesty is the name of the game – secrecy and jealousy are antiquated; stereotype emotions don’t seem to stand a chance and all concerned apparently stay cool.

But Ulrike Draesner sends the heroes and heroines of her latest novel through a labyrinth of romantic entanglements which one of the characters won’t leave alive.

“A very successful new novel on an old theme: two people loving each other at the same time.”
