It 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. During the restless summer weeks, unrelenting but buried currents of obsession, fascination, and desire intensify their passion as they test the charged ground between them and verge toward the one thing both already fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy.

A dazzling new story from the New York Times best-selling author of Call Me By Your Name. Itâs been 10 years since a group of college friends made a vow: that the first to get rich would rent a boat and invite the others on a cruise. Now, the friends find themselves marooned at a luxurious hotel on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. While their boat is being repaired, they canât help but observe the daily routine of a fellow hotel guest - a mysterious, white-bearded stranger who sits on the veranda each night and smokes one cigarette, sometimes two. One evening, the stranger approaches their table and places a hand on the shoulder of Mark, a member of the group who recently suffered an injury to that very shoulder. In an instant, Markâs pain miraculously evaporates. The group is stunned, eager to find out more about this strangerâs healing powers - everyone but Margot, who is suspicious of this man and reluctant to join her friendsâ enthusiasm. Soon, though, even Margot finds herself enchanted by his mystical powers, and she allows RaÃºl to introduce her to simple pleasures like fresh fish seasoned with peppery olive oil and swimming in the sea in midafternoon light. She also allows him to tell her things about herself - testing his unnerving clairvoyance - until she realizes that they may have already met and that this is neither the beginning of their love story nor the end. Written by AndrÃ© Aciman and performed by Edoardo Ballerini, two master storytellers at the height of their own otherworldly powers, The Gentleman from Peru is a sultry and spellbinding tale of love, self-discovery, and past lives.Â

AndrÃ© Aciman has been hailed as "the most exciting new fiction writer of the 21st century" (New York magazine), a "brilliant chronicler of the disconnect...between who we are and who we wish we might have been" (Wall Street Journal), and a writer of "fiction at its most supremely interesting" (Colm TÃ³ibÃn). Now, with his third and most ambitious novel, Aciman delivers an elegant and powerful tale of the wages of assimilation - a moving story of an immigrantâs remembered youth and the nearly forgotten costs and sacrifices of becoming an American. Itâs the fall of 1977, and amid the lovely, leafy streets of Cambridge a young Harvard graduate student, a Jew from Egypt, longs more than anything to become an assimilated American and a professor of literature. He spends his days in a pleasant blur of 17th-century fiction, but when he meets a brash, charismatic Arab cab driver in a Harvard Square cafÃ©, everything changes. Nicknamed Kalashnikov - Kalaj for short - for his machine-gun vitriol, the cab driver roars into the studentâs life with his denunciations of the American obsession with "all things jumbo and ersatz" - Twinkies, monster television sets, all-you-can-eat buffets - and his outrageous declarations on love and the art of seduction. The student finds it hard to resist his new friendâs magnetism, and before long he begins to neglect his studies and live a double life: one in the rarefied world of Harvard, the other as an exile with Kalaj on the streets of Cambridge. Together they carouse the bars and cafÃ©s around Harvard Square, trade intimate accounts of their love affairs, argue about the American dream, and skinny-dip in Walden Pond. But as final exams loom and Kalaj has his license revoked and is threatened with deportation, the student faces the decision of his life: whether to cling to his dream of New-World assimilation or risk it all to defend his Old-World friend. Harvard Square is a sexually charged and deeply American novel of identity and aspiration at odds. It is also an unforgettable, moving portrait of an unlikely friendship from one of the finest stylists of our time.

This program includes an introduction read by the author. The New York Times best-selling author of Find Me and Call Me by Your Name returns to the essay form with his collection of thoughts on time, the creative mind, and great lives and works. Irrealis moods are the set of verbal moods that indicate that something is not actually the case or a certain situation or action is not known to have happened.... AndrÃ© Aciman returns to the essay form in Homo Irrealis to explore what the present tense means to artists who cannot grasp the here and now. Irrealis is not about the present, or the past, or the future, but about what might have been but never was - but could in theory still happen. From meditations on subway poetry and the temporal resonances of an empty Italian street, to considerations of the lives and work of Sigmund Freud, Constantine Cavafy, W. G. Sebald, John Sloan, Ãric Rohmer, Marcel Proust, and Fernando Pessoa, and portraits of cities such as Alexandria and St. Petersburg, Homo Irrealis is a deep reflection of the imaginationâs power to shape our memories under timeâs seemingly intractable hold.

Eight White Nights is an unforgettable journey through that enchanted terrain where passion and fear and the sheer craving to ask for love and to show love can forever alter who we are. A man in his late twenties goes to a large Christmas party in Manhattan where a woman introduces herself with three words: "I am Clara." Over the following seven days, they meet every evening at the same cinema. Overwhelmed yet cautious, he treads softly and won't hazard a move. The tension between them builds gradually, marked by ambivalence, hope, and distrust. As Andre, Aciman explores their emotions with uncompromising accuracy and sensuous prose, they move both closer together and farther apart, culminating on New Year's Eve in a final scene charged with magic and the promise of renewal.

Sono passati parecchi anni da quell'estate in Riviera: Elio, in piena confusione adolescenziale, aveva scoperto la forza travolgente del primo amore grazie a Oliver, lo studente americano ospite del padre nella casa di famiglia. Erano stati giorni unici, in grado di segnare le loro vite con la forza di un desiderio incancellabile, nonostante ciascuno abbia poi proseguito per una strada diversa. Il nuovo romanzo di AndrÃ© Aciman si apre con l'incontro casuale su un treno tra un professore di mezza etÃ e una giovane donna: lui Ã¨ Samuel, il padre di Elio, sta andando a Roma per tenere una conferenza ed Ã¨ ansioso di cogliere l'occasione per rivedere suo figlio, pianista affermato ma molto inquieto nelle questioni sentimentali; lei Ã¨ una fotografa, carattere ribelle e refrattaria alle relazioni stabili, e in quell'uomo piÃ¹ maturo scopre la persona che avrebbe voluto conoscere da sempre.Â Tra i due nasce un'attrazione fortissima, che li porterÃ a mettere in discussione tutte le loro certezze. Anche per Elio il destino ha in serbo un incontro inaspettato a Parigi, che potrebbe assumere i contorni di un legame importante. Ma nulla puÃ² far sbiadire in lui il ricordo di Oliver, che vive a New York una vita apparentemente serena, Ã¨ sposato e ha due figli adolescenti, eppure... Una parola, solo una parola, potrebbe bastare a riaprire una porta che in fondo non si Ã¨ mai chiusa. Con la magistrale sensibilitÃ che ha dimostrato nel raccontare i sentimenti, AndrÃ© Aciman riannoda i destini dei protagonisti di "Chiamami col tuo nome", in un romanzo che si interroga e ci interroga sulla durata dell'amore, al di lÃ del tempo e delle distanze.
