À propos

A New York Times Bestseller In this spellbinding exploration of the varieties of love, the author of the worldwide bestseller 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 readers about the nature of love than Andre 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 Timothee 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.

André Aciman

André Aciman avait à peine dix ans quand il a fui Alexandrie en 1965. Né dans une famille juive égyptienne et francophone, il subit de plein fouet l'expulsion des Juifs d'Égypte ordonnée par le gouvernement de Nasser. Étudiant successivement en Italie, en France, et aux États-Unis, il a acquis très tôt une culture polyglotte qui a fait de lui un véritable érudit. Professeur de littérature comparée à Princeton, à New York University, et depuis 1997 à Bard College, il enseigne la littérature française du 17ème siècle, tout en poursuivant ses recherches sur le marranisme et la phrase proustienne, dont il est un des spécialistes américains. Auteur de très nombreux articles, André Aciman a déjà publié deux livres auxquels vient s'ajouter Alibis.
