An extraordinary debut... Evocative, poetic and deeply beautiful... will strike an exquisite chord with those falling in love for the first time. * Tatler * Call Me By Your Name is a beautiful and wise book, written with both lightness and concentrated care for the precise truth of every moment in its drama... this is a miracle. -- Colm Toibin Brave, acute, elated, naked, brutal, tender, humane and beautiful. -- Nicole Krauss An exceptionally beautiful book... A first novel that abounds in moments of emotional and physical abandon... As much a story of paradise found as it is of paradise lost... Exquisite... Extraordinary. -- Stacey D'Erasmo * New York Times * The most exciting new fiction writer of the 21st century. Few novels since Proust's In Search of Lost Time are this adept at capturing the nuances of human emotion. -- Diana Fuss * New York Magazine *
