Looking for the ePub edition?
A boy and girl promise to meet at midnight on a bench halfway between their apartments, and run away together, only the boy never comes. Twenty years later in Montreal, she meets someone who reminds her of the boy and wonders whether it could really be him. A brilliant anti-war story that wakes the reader in hope and love, and helps understand just how useless, meaningless and absurd war really is.
Only today left. I wonder who will arrive first, you or your letter. One more night of sleeping until I see you again. This is the last sentence you wrote to me.
