The Day I Found You

Translated by Daniel Hahn

An unforgettable book from Portugal' bestselling author that promises to change how we write and read about love

The restaurant is crowded and noisy. The man sits by the window, watching the grey sky, bored, as he is every Monday morning. Suddenly he turns and she's there, standing in front of him. Years have passed since he last saw her, since the day he left, without an explanation, without a reason. Only now does he realize he never stopped loving her, even for a second. When she tries to run away from him, too shocked by the sudden onslaught of emotions, he stops her. And as they embrace, surrounded by passersby, they promise to hold on, to make mistakes again. To love each other. Deeply and forever.

With his intimate, almost whispered style, Pedro Chagas Freitas takes the reader on a journey to discover the truth about love; the kind of love that touches, envelops and thrills you, that conceals and reveals, that wounds and heals, that seizes you and sets you free.
