"[Narrator Michael Stuhlbarg's] elegant performance and Aciman's sensitive writing keep things touching without ever being sentimental. Wonderful listening." (AudioFile magazine, Earphones Award winner)

This program is read by Michael Stuhlbarg, the actor who played Professor Samuel Perlman in Luca Guadagnino's critically acclaimed film Call Me by Your Name.

A bonus conversation between Michael Stuhlbarg and André Aciman is included at the end of the program.

In this spellbinding exploration of the varieties of love, the author of the worldwide best seller Call Me by Your Name revisits its complex and beguiling characters decades after their first meeting. 

No novel in recent memory has spoken more movingly to contemporary listeners about the nature of love than André Aciman’s haunting Call Me by Your Name. First published in 2007, it was hailed as “a love letter, an invocation...an exceptionally beautiful book” (Stacey D’Erasmo, The New York Times Book Review). Nearly three quarters of a million copies have been sold, and the book became a much-loved, Academy Award-winning film starring Timothée Chalamet as the young Elio and Armie Hammer as Oliver, the graduate student with whom he falls in love.  

In Find Me, Aciman shows us Elio’s father, Samuel, on a trip from Florence to Rome to visit Elio, who has become a gifted classical pianist. A chance encounter on the train with a beautiful young woman upends Sami’s plans and changes his life forever.  

Elio soon moves to Paris, where he, too, has a consequential affair, while Oliver, now a New England college professor with a family, suddenly finds himself contemplating a return trip across the Atlantic.   

Aciman is a master of sensibility, of the intimate details and the emotional nuances that are the substance of passion. Find Me brings us back inside the magic circle of one of our greatest contemporary romances to ask if, in fact, true love ever dies.

"Narrator Michael Stuhlbarg's rough, raspy voice lends a whispery intimacy to this sequel to Call Me by Your Name.... Stuhlbarg's elegant performance and Aciman's sensitive writing keep things touching without ever being sentimental. Wonderful listening." (AudioFile Magazine)

Was hoping for more

Ok, like so many I was ready for a further continuation of Call Me By Your Name. Alas, this really isn’t it. The portion of the 200 plus page book devoted to Elio and Oliver is a mere 11 pages, that’s it. Granted I was satisfied with were we left them at this end of this book, but there was so much more than we got, that needed to be delved into. But based on the words of Mr. Aciman, this is it for our heros. The first two thirds of the book is about Mr Perlman and a much younger he meets on the train. Mr Aciman has relayed how this sort of encounter happened to him and this is more a less of allowing himself to see how it might have played out. If he wanted to do a book about this, he should have just left Elio and Oliver our of it. We learn a bit more about Elio and Oliver’s life apart from one another in the next 2 sections before the final 11 pages. Michael Stuhlbarg’s reading was nice but it felt odd hearing him reading the thoughts of Elio and Oliver. I’m glad there was a happy ending of sorts but I’m now left wanting more.

Lost Me

I am agreed with many of the other current reviews that Find Me is not a sequel to CMBYN. Although it was excellently written and narrated, for me the story line left a lot to be desired. Too many chapters were about Samuel and his new love affair with the women he met on the train. After that I had a hard time following the story and understanding who was who. In the first novel the story is written from the perspective of Elio and there is a strong connection to the story and all his emotions, and the story is easy to follow. With reading Find Me, I was often lost and confused. Had the sequel been written in the same context, from Elio's perspective, I think it would have been a much more successful sequel. I did enjoy Acman's beautiful descriptions of the settings in Rome and Paris and choice of vocabulary describing human emotion. My first review of any title on here by the way; but I felt I needed to do it.

I got so lost.

quite frankly, I'm confused. what a weird book as a follow-up to call me by your name. I don't know if it was just the audio adaptation, but nothing was separated and it took me a while to find out who I was was supposed to be listening to.

Soothing narration//intimate story

I loved Call Me By Your Name. I guess that has to be said. I think I love Aciman’s writing for his language choices. His words leave me stunned and I find myself often going back and rereading lines over and over again because of their beauty. But I also loved these characters and wanted to see what their lives looked and felt like decades later. I was wholly pleased with the outcomes. And I would listen to anything Michael Stuhlbarg narrates.

Painfully Beautiful

The poignant simplicity of Andre Aciman’s words convey such an extraordinary depth of feeling. The build up to what most of the readers are looking forward to creates such tension, while at the same time satisfying other parts of our psyche. Again, Aciman gives us what we didn’t know we needed until he finally gives us what we wanted - and he does so in a way that is so painfully human and honest that we never want this story to end. Long Live Oliver and Elio.

I'd Rather Wonder What Happened Than Read Sequel

No. I should have known when I read Aciman's oeuvre and felt that Call Me By Your Name was his only book firing on all cylinders. It's personal, yeah, I know that. Few books touched me like Call Me By Your Name. This book, Find Me: lots of touching but I wasn't involved. The book is like a sexually-fluid ramp among the best and brightest and most privileged. Do I identify with any of them? Nope. I had trouble identifying a personality difference or a sexual behavior difference between Oliver, Elio, and Elio's dad! There was almost a juicy mystery...alas, it crashed and burned. Mr. Aciman can turn a phrase, create an aphorism, and, portray the intricacies of close human interactions. Thank you for not talking down to your readers.

Not what you are hoping for

I understand sequels are a massive challenge. There are such high expectations to live up to. And maybe because of this the author was afraid to dive into the story line that so many people were wanting and decided to dance around the plot that was expected. So this was a let down. Also the fact that every main character we know from the original becomes suddenly madly, sexually attracted to some random person they meet was very unsatisfying. Overall I think he should have used each story line of each romance in separate unrelated books. They aren’t bad. Just not what anyone was wanting.

Good sequel

I enjoyed it! Love the narrator's voice. Had a hard time keeping up with who "i" was referring to at times since Andrė always write in first person for every character. But overall great!

Superb sequel!

Couldn't stop reading it... This flew by! Beautiful, sensitive writing that captures the sensation of deep, resonant intimacy in many situations. This book made me so grateful that I'm with my person. I related a lot to how these deep connections were written.

The ending is the book

I feel like the first half of the book is forced and unimaginative. The stories are very cliche and predictable and the writing lacks the descriptive imagery that Aciman is known for. I don't know if this was in purpose as to show the muted life which Oliver and Elio led while apart from one another, or if this was on behalf of a lack of passion in the stories themselves. The profound commentary on life and on human beings themselves only appears once Oliver is drunk and the book after that point. I feel that the story of Elio's father's romance was unnecessary or could have been told more succinctly or at least with less contrived diction. I do very much like the ending and I like the glimpse into Oliver's life and wish that more time had been spend on his life without Elio and his yearning for the life he left behind. Likewise I feel that more time could have been spent on Elio's life as opposed to his father's.

The book touches just like call me by your name!

In a total different way. But in all it's all about real and honest love that lasts for a lifetime. A big Thank you to Michael Stuhlbarg for your emotional voice!!! I couldn't stop listening. Some may be dissapointed to not hear only from Elio and Oliver. But I was very excited to get to know Elios father that better after that fenomenal speech in the first book. And I learned Elio is just like him! And finaly at the very end, the story about Elio and Oliver leaves us back without that tears of lost. I am only sad that the book is finished due to I would like to know more from the other members of the first and second story just like Marcia, Elios mother or what happened to Michelle? Due to all these people had influence on Elios live and made him who he is like many people have influence on our own lives and make us who we are. And of course what happened after Elio and Oliver FOUND each other again?? Maybe André Aciman surprises us with a follow up?! I would be more than happy 😊 And for now I can't wait to see what Luca Guadagnino makes out of this 😉
