March 12: Andre Aciman's Call Me by Your Name
It is the story of a sudden and powerful romance that blossoms between an adolescent boy and a summer guest at his parents’ cliff-side mansion on the Italian Riviera. Each is unprepared for the consequences of their attraction when, during the restless summer weeks, unrelenting currents of obsession, fascination, and desire intensify their passion and test the charged ground between them. Recklessly, the two verge toward the one thing both fear—that they may never truly find again: total intimacy. It is an instant classic and one of the great love stories of our time.
