A passionate love story about a Danish woman and a much younger Portuguese artist, confronting ideas of time, sexuality, and tragedy in a style reminiscent of both Proust and Lars Von Trier. Emotional and visceral, the novel drifts through time and space, relating the lives, loves, and dissolutions of everyone who surrounds this unexpected couple, including the woman's former husband, her daughter and her lovers, who include a boy who finds himself and his true sexual identity in America, and the young boy who 'is perhaps a girl, but does not yet know it,' who narrates it all.
