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.

    Best book I’ve ever read! I didn’t want it to end, and when it did, I felt a mix between sadness and happiness. I recommend it to everyone. It isn’t a gay love story, it’s so much more than that... It is the story of two souls that connect in a high spiritual way.

  • Stunning.

    By Wurtis1
    CMBYN isn’t a gay romance. It’s a time-tunnel into yourself at 17. Beautiful, compelling and almost unbearably rendered, this is a novel that will change you forever.
