An Instant Classic and One of the Great Love Stories of Our Time

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.

"The book is incredible. My wife [Elizabeth Chambers] calls it the sexiest book she's ever read. It humanises love in a really powerful, beautiful way."--Armie Hammer, Time Out (London) "I loved the movie...and the book completely blew me away!"--Marc Jacobs on Instagram

"I finally read Andre Aciman's deeply moving novel Call Me by Your Name, racing to do so before I saw Luca Guadagnino's (sublime) movie adaptation with its sensitive screenplay by James Ivory--and I adored it."--Hamish Bowles, (Best Books We Read All Year)

"Superb...The beauty of Aciman's writing and the purity of his passions should place this extraordinary first novel within the canon of great romantic love stories for everyone."--Charles Kaiser, The Washington Post Book World

"An extraordinary examination of longing and the complicated ways in which we negotiate the experience of attraction....It's startling that a novel so bracingly unsentimental--alert to the ways we manipulate, second-guess, forestall, and finally reach stumblingly toward one another--concludes with such emotional depths."--Mark Doty, O, The Oprah Magazine

"This novel is hot...a love letter, an invocation, and something of an epitaph....An exceptionally beautiful book."--Stacey D'Erasmo, The New York Times Book Review

"If you are prepared to take a hard punch in your gut, and like brave, acute, elated, naked, brutal, tender, humane, and beautiful prose, then you've come to the right place."--Nicole Krauss, author of The History of Love "A great love story...every phrase, every ache, every giddy rush of sensation in this beautiful novel rings true."--Michael Upchurch, The Seattle Times "The novel is richly, sensuously detailed...luminous....Aciman deftly charts a burgeoning relationship that both parties want and fear."--Karen Campbell, The Boston Globe

"If you are prepared to take a hard punch in your gut and like brave, acute, elated, naked, brutal, tender, humane, and beautiful, then you've come to the right place. If you can't handle the violence of the regret it will awake in you, or the agony of remembering wanting someone more than you wanted anything in your life, or the exquisite suffering that comes with the gain, and loss, of something that neared perfect understanding, then don't read this book. Ditto if you like your literature censored. Otherwise, open the cover and let Aciman pull the pin from the grenade." --Nicole Krauss, author of "The History of Love"
