The Day I Met My Dead Husband

  • First published in 2005, adapted for film in 2008

How well do we know those we love? A great, moving novel about the images we have of each other and the paths we choose in life.

Everyone believes that Robert, who has been missing since a shipwreck, is dead, even though his body has never been found. His wife Helene, who has stayed behind with their two children, is the only one who continues to believe that he will return.

One evening, when she is persuaded by her old friend Matthias to go to a concert, she suddenly finds herself face to face with her husband during the interval. But he claims not to know her. Is it really Robert? Convinced that he is only pretending to be someone else, Helene begins a journey through the night between truth and delusion.
