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
"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, Vogue.com (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
