After much discussion around what would follow ‘Call Me By Your Name’, book publisher Farrar, Straus and Giroux have now announced that the book’s author André Aciman is writing a sequel to the incredibly popular first book.
The book will be called ‘Find Me’ and is set for release on October 29, 2019. The plot is outlined as follows: “In Find Me, Aciman shows us Elio’s father Samuel, now divorced, on a trip from Florence to Rome to visit Elio, who has become a gifted classical pianist. A chance encounter on the train leads to a relationship that changes Sami’s life definitively. Elio soon moves to Paris where he too has a consequential affair, while Oliver, now a professor in northern New England with sons who are nearly grown, suddenly finds himself contemplating a return visit to Europe.”
In a statement to Vulture about the sequel, Aciman said: “The world of Call Me by Your Name never left me. Though I created the characters and was the author of their lives, what I never expected was that they’d end up teaching me things about intimacy and about love that I didn’t quite think I knew until I’d put them down on paper. The film made me realize that I wanted to be back with them and watch them over the years — which is why I wrote Find Me.”
