Elegant, reflective and sumptuously atmospheric, a debut novel about three young lovers navigating the risks and possibilities of intimacy
Thora, August and Hugo come from different worlds - one an art school dreamer, one a wealthy scion of the old world elite, and one an ordinary boy from the suburbs - but over the course of two sky-blue summers in Stockholm they are drawn together magnetically.
Many years later, Hugo is living alone in New York. He hasn't spoken to Thora for over two decades. He didn't reach out to her when August died. But one day their daughter turns up, fully grown, on his doorstep, with questions about her parents that only Hugo can answer - and the memories of those luminous days come flooding back.
Modern yet timeless, poignant and euphoric, The Trio is a novel about the path not taken, the people we might have become, and the relationships which shape and haunt us long after they come to a close.
