Summer Women, Winter Women

Published by Diogenes as Sommerfrauen, Winterfrauen
English Title: Summer Women, Winter Women

This powerful artist novel and love story is an evocation and a swan song to a youth greedy for highs and fame on the eve of 9/11. Written with the irrepressible joy of storytelling that captivated readers of Cold Blood.

»I’m a winter woman, Jonas. I hope you don’t meet some damn summer woman.«
»I’m not going to meet any women. New York is a city completely devoid of women.«

A movie about sex. Raw and radical. In New York. That is the task Jonas has been given. But how is the film student, who is out of his depth, supposed to make a movie in the darkest corner of the Lower East Side, surrounded by stranded artists? When he meets Nele, a headstrong, dazzling summer woman, his eyes are opened for the true purpose of his trip: an encounter with his own horrific family history.
