*Starred Review* Set some 20 years after Aciman's novel Call Me by Your Name (2007), the inspiration for the acclaimed motion picture of the same title, this sometimes-elegiac sequel finds Elio now a celebrated classical pianist and Oliver an academic. To find out more about them, readers will have to be patient, though, for nearly the first half of the novel is given to Samuel, Elio's father, who meets a young woman half his age on a train from Florence to Rome, and the two quickly fall in love. Their relationship is echoed in the second of the novel's four movements in Elio's meeting a man, Michel, twice his age and falling in love. When we meet Oliver, he is hosting a party at his New York apartment. At the party are two young people, Paul and Erica, with whom Oliver is infatuated. Their leaving the party is an invitation for his melancholy meditation on love and the past, and it turns out that Oliver has been miserable for 20 years over his breakup with Elio, even though he was the one who ended the relationship. Will he have the inclination and energy to act on this? Call Me By Your Name was widely praised for its treatment of the nature of love, a theme that Find Me continues with subtlety and grace. Its treatment of the characters' psychology is astute and insightful, but what will ultimately drive reader interest is the question of whether star-crossed lovers Elio and Oliver will reunite. One can only hope. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
