Now a major motion picture from the makers of A Bigger Splash.

During a restless summer on the Italian Riviera, a powerful romance blooms between seventeen-year-old Elio and his father’s house guest, Oliver. Unrelenting currents of obsession and fear, fascination and desire threaten to overwhelm the lovers who at first feign indifference to the charge between them. What grows from the depths of their souls is a romance of scarcely six weeks’ duration, and an experience that marks them for a lifetime. For what the two discover on the Riviera and during a sultry evening in Rome is the one thing they both already fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy.

REVIEWS

A beautiful and wise book... A miracleColm Tóibín, author of Brooklyn

As much a story of paradise found as it is of paradise lost... Extraordinary
New York Times

Brave, acute, elated, naked, brutal, tender, humane and beautiful.
Nicole Krauss, author of Forest Dark

Extraordinary... Evocative, poetic and deeply beautiful... This riff on longing, sexual awakening and the impact of the past will strike an exquisite chord with those falling in love for the first time (or out of love for the last time)
Tatler
