The Trio (Hardcover)
"An absolutely fantastic debut novel."--Fredrik Backman, author of A Man Called Ove
A deeply atmospheric debut novel about three young people testing the boundaries of intimacy that is being hailed as "the love child of Normal People and Brideshead Revisited."
When Hugo takes a room in the house of one of Stockholm's wealthiest families, he unwittingly invites himself into the lives of people he will be unable to forget: Thora, a beautiful descendant of old money, and her childhood best friend August, who dreams of art. None of them have anything in common, but find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other.
Decades later, a young woman shows up on Hugo's door in New York one morning, hoping to stay with him. She introduces herself as the child of Thora and August, and comes carrying questions about her parents that send Hugo reeling back to his youth--to two euphoric summers in Stockholm, and people to whom he is now a stranger.
Timelessly familiar, tender and exultant, The Trio is a novel about the choices we could have made. About who we may have been, and the relationships that influence and linger on with us, long after they have come to an end.
