About André Aciman’s Find Me
André Aciman’s new novel, Find Me, follows up with Elio, Oliver, and Mr. Perlman from Call Me By Your Name at four different stages of their lives. The first three sections are told from each of Mr. Perlman’s, Elio’s, and then Oliver’s perspectives, before returning to Elio’s perspective for the finale. The story essentially occurs in the ellipses of the final chapters of the original novel.
In this episode, hear Alex and Orla break down Find Me as it compares to Call Me by Your Name, Aciman’s questionable storytelling but compelling prose, discuss how his writing was successfully adapted by Luca Guadagnino, how the film sequel will be different, and find out just how many times Alex and Orla have watched CMBYN.
