E–pub/Pdf [Call Me Da Your Name] µ André Aciman


Call Me By Your NameAN 0318 i did this and like all my ublic mistakes erasing the evidence of it won t erase the conseuencesit staysas much to remind me how it happened as to accept that it did at alllittle intimacies of the many many aspects of this book that resonated with us one in Beyond Citizenship: American Identity After Globalization particular was the basis of an interesting exchange between me and author santino hassell that exchange is excerpted belowSH what do you think so farJAG i like it it s very good at being what i think of as authentic teen gay boy POVSH it reminds me of somethingJAG it reminds me of a lot of thingsSH thearts where he s talking about how hot and cold the love interest dude getsJAG yes with his facial expressionSH yeahJAG that specifically that i ve been there with someone like that it s a little scary and then you understand them and it stops being scary sometimesSH yes i had a friend like that when i was a kid i thought i was in love with him but he was straightJAG i was thinking of the exact same thing i had the exact same thing a friend when i was a teen he d be warm and affectionate and then his face would go cold like i was a strangerSH yes that s how my friend was i think he suspected i wanted him he didn t know how to feel about itJAG that s what that scene in the book is about they realize you have deeper feelings and they don t know how to deal and then their face goes fucked in this moment of vulnerability they can t hide the Allerhand Fragliches panic or the revulsionSH yesJAG and it looks like thatSH yesJAG because straight dudes can feel warm affection for you too obviously and for a moment with some of them they feel when they realize you want them they feel that their affection h Shattering This book is a fucking axe to the heart But because my hearterhaps yours too was broken long ago no further damage can be done So Yolanda's Genius perhaps the book s like arobe yes a very discomfiting Fettan probe making a fuller assessment of the wreckage The book is also a final report of the survey as such it reminds us of the universality of our suffering Finally one thinks here s someone who has not onlylumbed the depths of heartbreak but who s taken excruciatingly detailed notes along the way revealing every nuance of the reuired self abasement The result is an astonishing catharsis for the reader This is what literature at its best can do Think Aeschylus s Oresteia but with an all mortal cast and without the choruses I speak here of the novel s sheer emotional Die Kunst Des Zeichnens: Die grosse Zeichenschule: Praxisorientiert und gut erklärt powerFor most of the novel the narrative is the firsterson thoughts fantasies worries shames and fears of Elio in the summer of his 17th year The young man is with his arents at their big comfortable summer house on the Italian Riviera It s the mid 1980s The boy s father is an academic and Oliver 24 is a young American colleague exchanging some brief work as amanuensis for room and board while finishing his own manuscript But in the marvelous big hearted Italian sense Oliver even if for only the six weeks of his stay is very much a art of the family Women are alluring to Elio but they are not his redominant fascination this alluring to Elio but they are not his redominant fascination this summer Description is thin at first almost transient and because the reader s not distracted by descriptive flights he or she never feels far from the anguish of Elio Life s first love is the theme and this iteration is so fresh so vivid and beautifully layered that it s not to be missed Among the best arts of the novel are those assages in which best arts of the novel are those assages in which before his intimacy with Oliver begins imagines what he might say to Oliver the multiple responses he might at any moment utter in Oliver s resence or imagined resence Elio s mind is racing with alternative scenarios Is this even what he wants He s not sure but he wants to find out Matters are thought out and after some new bit of action or information rethought and modified The techniue reminds me of Philip Roth s American Pastoral in which circumstances are similarly considered then reconsidered There is a mastery of tone here that constantly astonishes and bewilders Later in the novel when the description intensifies it s as if it has been saved for just these moments of lovemaking the confidential exchanges between the two in their subseuent walks and Swims Their Farewell In their farewell in the devastating coda It is the frankness between the two young men that to my mind constitutes the book s magic That something as amorphous as desire can be written about with such fluidity and integrity is near miraculous The wrenching depiction of Elio s new and utterly discomfiting Times of Bede passion consumes not only him but us as well In closing let me say that this book is likely to resound with those with some mileage on them real or metaphorical Therereuisite is suffering One can t imagine the novel s insights and wisdom working their wonders on anyone who hasn t at some time The Catechism of the Council of Trent put everything on the line The end was simply excruciating yet I couldn t stop reading Extremelyowerful I will reread this one soon In terms of achievement I City for Sale: Ed Koch and the Betrayal of New York place Call Me By Your Name on the same shelf as Madame Bovary and Lolita and yes very near Aeschylus too Sufjan Stevenslaying softly in the distance 25 starsAs a gay man I feel happy seeing ueer intimacies receive acceptance and The Runaway Prophet Jonah Study Guide 1998 popularity as evidenced by this book s film adaptation this year I appreciate theulsating emotions of lust and desire in Call Me by Your Name even if my own first crushes did not manifest into much of anything However I struggled to get into this book The writing felt too distant intellectual and heavy for me to immerse myself in Elio and Oliver s world The book contained so much introspection and I wanted scenes to get us into these Književna groupie 2: Strovaljivanje present moments with the two lovers And while I understand that the book aims toortray infatuation I found myself bored at times with Elio s obsession with Oliver Could he have thought some about the healthfulness or unhealthfulness of his feelings for Oliver Or could Andre Aciman have included details.

Legy for desire for memory itself and it manages to visit that interior terrain of longing most notably visited by A LA RECHERCHE DU TEMPS PERDU without begging a side by side comparison Which is a feat in itself What novelist could really survive a direct comparison to Proust Best to avoid it The frustrations of the novel only become apparent once the spell of Aciman s spare but lovelyrose has been broken While reading it I never thought to sneer at the clich s or at the roblems of a seventeen year old child of wealthy intellectuals I was too entranced by the salt breezes and the sunlit stones and the daily rituals of swimming breakfast dissertation work coffee dinner guests town bed and the millions of specific new shades of ain that result from each and every moment spent around and away from the narrator s object of desire There are some story frustrations here to be sure but from this book I was only expecting a bit of light escapism for my subway ride My expectations were so successfully shattered it was almost uncomfortable to read it in The Donegal Woman publicThis novel is hot wrote NYT reviewer Stacey D Erasmo Hell yes The heat here is not the heat of sex acts however though there is that but the heat of an ever building single minded raw gutted longing and theain of remembering it The heat is the agony of obsession when any solitary glance or casual exchange can be sharpened with two three ten edges of conflicting meaning I don t know that I ve ever read a book so relentlessly accurate in its detailing of each Martha's Chickens and the Pirates precise doubt and hope but mostly doubt that colors any interaction or lack of interaction with the object of one s desire Theserecise doubts are separated out and distilled The Necromancer, or The Tale of the Black Forest purely and tightly and lucidly by Aciman He just does not let up This was the great surprise of CALL ME BY YOUR NAME for me As much as I thought I d want to throw this book down at times I almost missed my stop because it would not let me go 45 Stars We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything what a waste Phew What an intense book what an intense ending Helloeople I hope you remember this lass here I haven t written a single review in almost 6 months Which is the entire Amstel Girl: Playing With Destiny period of my internship the one that s almost ending now So Iicked up reading again how fucking happy that makes me you have no idea So back to the chase Call Me by Your Name is the story of a sudden and owerful romance that blossoms between an adolescent boy and a summer guest at his arents cliff side mansion on the Italian Riviera Unprepared for the conseuences of their attraction at first each feigns indifference But during the restless summer weeks that follow unrelenting buried currents of obsession and fear fascination and desire intensify their assion as they test the charged ground between them What grows from the depths of their spirits 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
