Author(s): Andre Aciman
Now a major motion picture from director Luca Guadagnino, starring Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet, and produced by the Academy Award winning producer of A Room with a View Call Me by Your Name is the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blossoms between an adolescent boy and a summer guest at his parents' cliffside mansion on the Italian Riviera. During the restless summer weeks, unrelenting but buried currents of obsession, fascination, and desire intensify their passion as they test the charged ground between them and verge toward the one thing both already fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy. Andre Aciman's critically acclaimed debut novel is a frank, unsentimental, heartrending elegy to human passion.A New York Times Notable Book of the YearA Publishers Weekly Best Book of the YearA Washington Post Best Fiction Book of the YearA New York Magazine "Future Canon" SelectionA Chicago Tribune Favorite Book of the YearOne of The Seattle Times' Michael Upchurch's Favorite Books of the YearAn Amazon Top 100 Editors' Picks of the Year An Amazon Top 10 Editors' pick: Debut Fiction (#6)An Amazon Top 10 Editors' pick: Gay & Lesbian (#1)
