André Aciman Call Me By Your Name Press Conference Berlinale 2017 by Maximilian Bühn (CC Share Alike)
Now living in the United States, where he teaches comparative literature, André Aciman has charmed readers with reflections on his childhood in Egypt and the ramifications of being exiled from one's homeland. His 1994 book, Out of Egypt: A Memoir, and his 2000 collection of essays, False Papers: Essays on Exile and Memory, earned him a reputation as a skilled writer and a careful, engaging observer on the subjects of home and family.
Call Me by Your Name by
Publication Date: 2012
"Andre Aciman's '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. Each is unprepared for the consequences of their attraction, when, during the restless summer weeks, unrelenting currents of obsession, fascination, and desire intensify their passion and test the charged ground between them. Recklessly, the two verge toward the one thing both fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy. It is an instant classic and one of the great love stories of our time."
