How Did I End Up Here?

A Novel

by Petersdorff, Dirk von

How Did I End Up Here? is the question that echoes throughout this novel about the lives of four people in their late thirties, connected and drawn to each other, but who have followed very different paths in life. With intensity and irony, Dirk von Petersdorff shapes dense, poetic scenes that capture the delicate balance of his characters’ lives and the feeling of insecurity that they can’t seem to shake.

“Anna was lying in the shaft of light that the full moon threw into the room.” – this is how the story begins. Tim and Anna are married, and have a small son. Tim’s best friend John still acts like he is a college student and is currently single. However, he and Anna shared a night of passion in their youth and Tim can’t quite let go of his fear that John represents some kind of unpredictable temptation for his wife. While Anna longs for her lost freedom and past adventures and Tim faces some challenges at work, John actually envies both of them. You never know what or who might shift the balance.
