It is summer 1990, only months after the border dividing Germany has dissolved. Maria, nearly seventeen, moves in with her boyfriend on his family farm. A chance encounter with enigmatic loner Henner, a neighbouring farmer, quickly develops into a passionate relationship. But Maria soon finds that Henner can be as brutal as he is tender - his love reveals itself through both animal violence and unexpected sensitivity. Maria builds a fantasy of their future life together, but her expectations differ dramatically from those of Henner himself, until it seems their story can only end in tragedy. Someday We'll Tell Each Other Everything is a bold and impressive debut in which love and violence, conflict and longing, are inextricably entwined.

Review:

'A candid tale of raw passion, whose essence and timelessness shines through the spare prose' Süddeutsche Zeitung. (Süddeutsche Zeitung)

'A wonderful novel; a magnificent love story' Le Monde. (Le Monde)

'Daniela Krien is not afraid. Not of language, either. Which shines in this novel ... A novel that portrays so much turmoil so thoughtfully that the spellbound reader abandons themselves to it' Gabriele von Arnim, Die Zeit. (Die Zeit)

'One can almost physically feel the sensuality evoked by Daniela Krien's simple and emotionally precise language. A love story of extraordinary intensity, and a brilliant account of the demise of the D.D.R.' Brigitte. (Brigitte)

'This deceptively elegant story reveals great emotional and cultural upheaval' Kirkus Reviews. (Kirkus Reviews)

From the Back Cover:

'Now I've caught you,' he jokes, 'and dragged you back to my den.' Then he laughs, and it sound to me like the rumble of thunder.
Summer, 1990. The Berlin Wall has fallen, and Germany is preparing for reunification. In the sleepy countryside of the East, a chance encounter will change sixteen-year-old Maria's life for ever. Maria's neighbour Henner has a reputation for drinking, for letting his dogs run wild and for womanising. Maria is fascinated by this unknowable, unpredictable older man and the obvious desire she excites in him. But as the summer days grow longer, the passion she has so artlessly encouraged threatens to burn out of control.
