Each is unprepared for the consequences of their attraction, when, during the restless summer weeks, unrelenting currents of obsession, fascination, and desire intensify their passion and test the charged ground between them. Recklessly, the two verge toward the one thing both fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy. It is an instant classic and one of the great love stories of our time.
A beautiful and wise book... A miracle -- Colm Toibin, author of Brooklyn As much a story of paradise found as it is of paradise lost... Extraordinary --New York Times Brave, acute, elated, naked, brutal, tender, humane and beautiful. -- Nicole Krauss, author of Forest Dark Extraordinary... Evocative, poetic and deeply beautiful... This riff on longing, sexual awakening and the impact of the past will strike an exquisite chord with those falling in love for the first time (or out of love for the last time) --Tatler
