About the book
Sold toPoland: Pauza
Petra and Johannes are The Perfect Couple. Made for each other. The lawyer, the doctor; well-mannered and beautiful. Even so, it’s complicated… Because there are others in the picture as well. Less perfect. But more exciting, perhaps?
Julia and Axel are each other’s opposites. Ish. Or rather, just too much alike. Yet they are drawn to each other, painfully and inescapably. While their differences become more obvious (Axel on the deep state career track, Julia passionately in opposition to every damn thing), society changes and its basic tenants are thrown out of whack. Love turns from sex, to weaponized power.
Juxtaposed against the upscale background of the well-to-do, chic and contemporary Europe, All My Love is the story of social transformations carrying four lovers with them, irrevocably.
With a story that will appease any fans of Lionel Shriver’s The Mandibles or Kazuo Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go, Agnes Lidbeck has succeeded in creating an enticing relationship thriller with an acute message about the hazards of the political road ahead, executed in the brilliantly precise prose that has become her trademark.
