A New York Times Bestseller
In this spellbinding exploration of the varieties of love, the author of the worldwide bestseller Call Me by Your Name revisits its complex and beguiling characters decades after their first meeting.
No novel in recent memory has spoken more movingly to contemporary readers about the nature of love than André Aciman’s haunting Call Me by Your Name. First published in 2007, it was hailed as “a love letter, an invocation . . . an exceptionally beautiful book” (Stacey D’Erasmo, The New York Times Book Review). Nearly three quarters of a million copies have been sold, and the book became a much-loved, Academy Award–winning film starring Timothée Chalamet as the young Elio and Armie Hammer as Oliver, the graduate student with whom he falls in love.
In Find Me, Aciman shows us Elio’s father, Samuel, on a trip from Florence to Rome to visit Elio, who has become a gifted classical pianist. A chance encounter on the train with a beautiful young woman upends Sami’s plans and changes his life forever.
Elio soon moves to Paris, where he, too, has a consequential affair, while Oliver, now a New England college professor with a family, suddenly finds himself contemplating a return trip across the Atlantic.
Aciman is a master of sensibility, of the intimate details and the emotional nuances that are the substance of passion. Find Me brings us back inside the magic circle of one of our greatest contemporary romances to ask if, in fact, true love ever dies.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The years have passed between Call Me by Your Name and its sequel, Find Me. But time has done little to dampen the passions of André Aciman’s unforgettable characters. This novel opens a decade after the intense love affair between teenage Elio and graduate student Oliver, and follows both men as they grapple with new relationships and come to terms with the emotions of their pasts. Everything that wowed us about Call Me—Aciman’s gorgeous language and fluid pacing, and, of course, the couple’s steamy chemistry—is still here, but the story also dives into the bittersweet melancholy of aging and the aches of lost love. It’s a moving read.
