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.

Winner of the Lambda Literary Award for Ficition

From André Aciman, the author of Call Me by Your Name (now a major motion picture and the winner of the OscarTM for Best Adapted Screenplay) comes “a sensory masterclass, absorbing, intelligent, unforgettable” (Times Literary Supplement).

André Aciman, hailed as a writer of “fiction at its most supremely interesting” (The New York Review of Books), has written a novel that charts the life of a man named Paul, whose loves remain as consuming and as covetous throughout his adulthood as they were in his adolescence. Whether the setting is southern Italy, where as a boy he has a crush on his parents’ cabinetmaker, or a snowbound campus in New England, where his enduring passion for a girl he’ll meet again and again over the years is punctuated by anonymous encounters with men; whether he’s on a tennis court in Central Park, or on a New York sidewalk in early spring, his attachments are ungraspable, transient, and forever underwritten by raw desire—not for just one person’s body but, inevitably, for someone else’s as well.

In Enigma Variations, Aciman maps the most inscrutable corners of passion, proving to be an unsparing reader of the human psyche and a master stylist. With language at once lyrical, bare-knuckled, and unabashedly candid, he casts a sensuous, shimmering light over each facet of desire to probe how we ache, want, and waver, and ultimately how we sometimes falter and let go of those who may want to offer only what we crave from them. Ahead of every step Paul takes, his hopes, denials, fears, and regrets are always ready to lay their traps. Yet the dream of love lingers. We may not always know what we want. We may remain enigmas to ourselves and to others. But sooner or later we discover who we’ve always known we were.

永誌不忘

給那一年的我和你

給所有即將成為永恆的瞬間


如果我們再次相見,

請記得,以你的名字呼喚我,

而我,也同樣會用我的名字呼喚你。


十七歲那年的夏天,艾里歐感覺到自己的人生從此一分為二,

一半是遇見奧利佛之前,另一半是在那之後。

奧利佛的來訪驚擾了小城寧靜的空氣,

他讓午後暖風更加騷動,讓每一次沉默都成為試探。

隔鄰的房間、曖昧的池畔、夜半的足音、走廊上相互追逐的眼神,

艾里歐常想,如果沒有那些刻骨銘心的夜晚,他會不會朝生命的另一條路走去?

如果兩人不曾感受過彼此,他是否永不可能成為現在的自己?

是如何突如其來又猛烈的愛,緊縛兩人的身與心⋯⋯

是如何灼燒靈魂的六個星期,在他們心裡留下一生的印記⋯⋯


▍好評推薦:這部作品是奇蹟!


「如果你已經準備好要深深感動你的臟腑,喜歡勇敢、尖銳、狂喜、赤裸、殘忍、溫柔、人性與美麗的散文,那麼你找對書了。如果你無法面對這本小說即將在你內心喚起的強烈懊悔,或記起渴求某個人勝過人生任何事物所帶來的痛苦、得到或失去某樣近乎完全瞭然的東西而來的猛烈折磨,那麼請不要讀這本書。如果你喜歡經過審查的文學作品,那麼也請不要讀這本書。否則,請翻開封面,讓作者艾席蒙拉開催淚彈的保險梢。」

——《愛的歷史》作者/尼可.克勞斯


「《以你的名字呼喚我》是一本美麗與智慧兼具的書,分毫不差地以既輕盈又凝縮的謹慎,寫作其戲劇場面每一刻的精確真實。這本書將巧妙地立足於書架上介於詹姆斯.鮑德溫《喬凡尼的房間》(Giovanni’s Room)與愛德蒙.懷特《男孩故事》(A Boy’s Own Story)之間的位置。這也是一本絕佳的小說,描述地中海夏日感官的光芒,與充滿欲望的日日夜夜。艾席蒙的非小說作品一直清楚地告訴我們,有朝一日他會寫出一本很棒的小說,然而這部作品卻是奇蹟。」

——《大師》作者/柯姆.托賓


「艾席蒙的散文活現了感情上的每一個迴旋與退縮處,每一個發出和撤回的信號……一個偉大的愛情故事……每個句子、每種痛苦,在《以你的名字呼喚我》中每一陣令人頭暈的激動感都流露出了真實性。」

——《西雅圖時報》


「《以你的名字呼喚我》很熱門。這是一個成長過程的故事,一個出櫃的故事,一個對於歲月和欲望的普魯斯特式冥想,一封情書,一種召喚魔咒以及類似墓誌銘的東西,《以你的名字呼喚我》……是本異常美的書。」

——《紐約時報》書評

Elio Perlman se souvient de l’été de ses 17 ans, à la fin des années quatre-vingt. Comme tous les ans, ses parents accueillent dans leur maison sur la côte italienne un jeune universitaire censé assister le père d’Elio, éminent professeur de littérature. Cette année l’invité sera Oliver, dont le charme et l’intelligence sautent aux yeux de tous. Au fil des jours qui passent au bord de la piscine, sur le court de tennis et à table où l’on se laisse aller à des joutes verbales enflammées, Elio se sent de plus en plus attiré par Oliver, tout en séduisant Marzia, la voisine. L’adolescent et le jeune professeur de philosophie s’apprivoisent et se fuient tour à tour, puis la confusion cède la place au désir et à la passion. Quand l’été se termine, Oliver repart aux États-Unis, et le père d’Elio lui fait savoir qu’il est loin de désapprouver cette relation singulière...
Quinze ans plus tard, Elio rend visite à Oliver en Nouvelle-Angleterre. Il est nerveux à l’idée de rencontrer la femme et les enfants de ce dernier, mais les deux hommes comprennent finalement que la mémoire transforme tout, même l’histoire d’un premier grand amour. Quelques années plus tard, ils se rendent ensemble à la maison en Italie où ils se sont aimés et évoquent la mémoire du père d’Elio, décédé depuis.

Appelle-moi par ton nom est un roman d’amour singulier tout autant qu’une réflexion sur la mémoire et l’oubli. La langue à la fois précise et sensuelle d’André Aciman parvient à évoquer la tyrannie des corps – mais aussi la part de brutalité qui se niche dans tout éveil au sentiment amoureux – avec une élégance rare.

Ce roman, devenu culte dans le monde anglo-saxon à l’instar de Brokeback Mountain, est adapté au cinéma par Luca Guadagnino (sortie française le 28 février 2018). Call me by your name est donné comme l'un des favoris pour les oscars.
