After ten years away, Adèle has returned to drive the school bus in the village in the Ardèche mountains where she grew up. Her body has undergone seismic transformations, just like the landscape around her. No one recognises her. But when a snowstorm strands the bus on a mountainside, Adèle and her passengers take shelter in a cave, and the secrets begin to emerge.
One Day I’ll Tell You Everything is the haunting story of two siblings—a younger brother and his older sister, who used to be his brother.

"One Day I’ll Tell You Everything is a sumptuous read. My senses were set alight—I could feel the sun, smell the air, taste the snow. At its heart lies the story of Adele—a woman who is at once fleeing, and reconciling with, her past. It is Adele who gives the book its pulse. Every page thrums with her love."—Melanie Cheng, Author of Room for a Stranger
"There is something luminous and gentle about Emmanuelle Pagano’s prose...We do not expect the female narrator to have been a him. The theme of femininity carried by the substance of the writing itself takes on a deeper and more radical meaning…Pagano also excels at rendering palpable the lives of a tight-lipped, enclosed community, where the wind is a hazard and where farm anecdotes can become local mythology."—Le Matricule des anges
"Close to being a masterpiece. A novel full of grace that takes us into the heart of female experience."—Le Matricule des Anges
"A superb novel, both thrilling and consoling."—Le Soir
"A love story that is as troubling as it is exhilarating. Whether she’s writing about bodies in torment or her Ardèche mountains, her writing is all sensuality."—Télérama
