André Aciman with Dave Wheeler
This evening we’ll welcome acclaimed novelist André Aciman back to Seattle to read from his novel, Find Me (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), the much awaited sequel to Call Me By Your Name. Find Me, set twenty years after Call Me By Your Name, explores the effect of Elio and Oliver’s affair on their later lives.
"Call Me By Your Name was widely praised for its treatment of the nature of love, a theme that Find Me continues with subtlety and grace. Its treatment of the characters' psychology is astute and insightful, but what will ultimately drive reader interest is the question of whether star-crossed lovers Elio and Oliver will reunite. One can only hope." --Booklist (Starred Review).
Call Me By Your Name, published in 2007, was made into a film starring Timothée Chalamet as the young Elio and Armie Hammer as Oliver, the graduate student with whom he falls in love. André Aciman’s books include Out of Egypt, False Papers and Enigma Variations.
