In Find Me, Aciman shows us Elio’s father, Samuel, on a trip from Florence to Rome to visit Elio, who has become a gifted classical pianist. A chance encounter on the train with a beautiful young woman upends Sami’s plans and changes his life forever.
What is the plot of Find Me?
Find Me is a four-act book, and the first and longest act — set 10 years after the events of Call Me By Your Name — is about Elio’s father Samuel and his budding romance with a woman named Miranda who is half his age.
Why does Oliver leave Elio?
So, the reason for leaving Elio, is either societal fear or Oliver’s straight orientation. I found it really strange that while both Elio and Oliver were so into each other, they never raised a question on the imminent parting; they accepted it like it was a dogma.
Who is the narrator in Find Me?
Elio was the narrator of the first book; is Find Me also told from his point of view? In some sections, yes. The book is split into four chapters, the first two taking up the lion’s share of pages. Elio’s longer section is the second; his father Samuel handles the first (titled “Tempo”).
What is Call Me By Your Name 2 about?
It’s the summer of 1983, and precocious 17-year-old Elio Perlman is spending the days with his family at their 17th-century villa in Lombardy, Italy. He soon meets Oliver, a handsome doctoral student who’s working as an intern for Elio’s father. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of their surroundings, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever.
What happens at the end of Call Me By Your Name?
Over the course of over 100 pages, Samuel and Miranda bond, share a meal with her father, spend time with Elio, and fall in love. By its end, the duo decide to decamp for Samuel’s house (the same house where Elio and Oliver fell in love) and spend the rest of their lives together.
What happened to Elio’s parents?
Sadly, Sam died, but Miranda lives in his house with her and Sam’s 7-year-old son, also named Oliver (after Elio’s Oliver, who had a lasting impact on the Perlman family). Elio’s mom, who can’t live alone because she suffers from dementia, also is there with her caretaker.
