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.

    What did she mean by love in the trenches? Life with someone? Life without love? Life trying to invent someone and finding the wrong one each time? Life with too many? Life with very few, or none that mattered?

    people go together to the movies to see movies or to be together, or because they liked each other and this is what one did sometimes when one liked someone — one went to the movies with her, as if it was the most natural thing in the world. Did one switch from watching the movie to being together, and at what point did one stop switching from one to the other? Why was I even asking all this?
