Eight White Nights: The unforgettable love story from the author of Call My By Your Name
A powerfully original novel of modern love by the author of Call Me By Your Name.
An unforgettable journey through the experience of time and desire, where passion and fear and the sheer craving to ask for love and to show love can forever alter who we are.
A man in his late twenties goes to a large Christmas party in Manhattan where a woman introduces herself with three words: 'I am Clara.' Over the following seven days, they meet every evening in the snowy city. Overwhelmed yet cautious, he treads softly and won't hazard a move. The tension between them builds, marked by ambivalence, hope, and distrust. Moving both closer together, then further apart, this amorous dance builds towards a New Year's Eve charged with magic, the promise of renewal and love.
