“Find Me” – André Aciman’s follow up to “Call Me by Your Name”
In Find Me, André Aciman gives readers a follow up to Call Me by Your Name. This new novel introduces Elio’s father, Samuel, who takes 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.
No novel in recent memory has spoken more movingly to contemporary readers about the nature of love than Aciman’s Call Me by Your Name. Since first published in 2007, nearly three quarters of a million copies have been sold, and the book became an Academy Award–winning film starring Timothée Chalamet as Elio and Armie Hammer as Oliver, the graduate student with whom he falls in love.
In this follow up novel, Elio has moved 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. Find Me brings us back inside the magic circle of one of our greatest contemporary romances to ask if true love ever dies.
André Aciman is the author of Eight White Nights, Call Me by Your Name, Out of Egypt, False Papers, Alibis, Harvard Square, and Enigma Variations, and is the editor of The Proust Project (all published by FSG). He teaches comparative literature at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. He lives with his wife in Manhattan.
