The restaurant is crowded and noisy. The man sits by the window, watching the grey sky, bored, as he is every Monday morning. Suddenly he turns and she's there, standing in front of him. Years have passed since he last saw her, since the day he left, without an explanation, without a reason. Yet only now does he realize he never stopped loving her, even for a second. When she tries to run away from him, too shocked by the sudden onslaught of emotions, he stops her. And as they embrace, surrounded by passersby, they promise to hold on, to make mistakes again. To love each other. Deeply and forever. With his intimate, almost whispered style, Pedro Chagas Freitas takes the reader on a journey to explore the deepest layers of their feelings and to discover the truth about love; the kind of love that touches, grabs and thrills you, that discovers and conceals, that wounds and heals, that seizes you and sets you free. Pedro Chagas Freitas is a Portuguese writer, journalist, editor and professional public speaker who has published more than twenty works. He studied linguistics and teaches creative writing. Daniel Hahn is a writer and translator. He translates literature from Portuguese, Spanish and French into English. He lives in Brighton, England. An unforgettable book from Portugal's bestselling author that promises to change how we write about love
