Set during a restless summer on the Italian Riviera, Call Me By Your Name tells the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blooms between seventeen-year-old Elio and his father's house guest Oliver.
Currents of obsession and fear, fascination and desire threaten to overwhelm the lovers who at first feign indifference to the charge between them. A romance of scarcely six weeks’ duration will prove to be 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.
"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."
