Description

Call Me By Your Name is the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blooms between seventeen-year-old Elio and his father's house guest Oliver during a restless summer on the Italian Riviera. Unrelenting currents of obsession and fear, fascination and desire threaten to overwhelm the lovers who at first feign indifference to the charge between them. What grows from the depths of their souls is a romance of scarcely six weeks' duration, and an experience that marks them for a lifetime. For what the two discover on the Riviera and during a sultry evening in Rome is the one thing they both already fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy.show more

Review quote

An extraordinary debut... Evocative, poetic and deeply beautiful... will strike an exquisite chord with those falling in love for the first time. * Tatler * Call Me By Your Name is a beautiful and wise book, written with both lightness and concentrated care for the precise truth of every moment in its drama... this is a miracle. * Colm Toibin * Brave, acute, elated, naked, brutal, tender, humane and beautiful. * Nicole Krauss * An exceptionally beautiful book... A first novel that abounds in moments of emotional and physical abandon... As much a story of paradise found as it is of paradise lost... Exquisite... Extraordinary. -- Stacey D'Erasmo * New York Times * The most exciting new fiction writer of the 21st century. Few novels since Proust's In Search of Lost Time are this adept at capturing the nuances of human emotion. -- Diana Fuss * New York Magazine *show more
