Now a major motion picture from director Luca Guadagnino, starring Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet, winner of the 2018 Academy Award for Adapted Screenplay

Celebrate André Aciman’s sensational novel with a dynamic audiobook, read by Armie Hammer

Call Me by Your Name first swept across the world in 2007. 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. 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.

André Aciman’s critically acclaimed debut novel is a frank, unsentimental, heartrending elegy to human passion.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Armie Hammer’s intimate whisper makes each beautiful, erotic, or painful moment bittersweet…Hammer is convincing as Oliver, and while his voice is somewhat mature for seventeen-year-old Elio, his emotional tone is impeccable. When the men meet again years later, Hammer captures the moment, which is both ordinary and devastating.”

  • “Hammer’s voice is brimming with such melody that, if you listen to it long enough, you can probably get drunk off it.”

    Vulture (audio review)

  • “Armie Hammer (who plays Oliver in the movie) steps effortlessly into Elio’s interior world. The result is staggering. I found myself holding my breath though parts of this book. I’d be listening to it while cooking, and would have to stop and sit down because I couldn’t concentrate on anything but his voice…Hammer made himself disappear until only Elio remained. His narration is so honest, so vulnerable, and so authentic.”

O, The Oprah Magazine

    " For once I liked the movie better! Maybe it's because I saw the movie first, I"m not sure. I felt that the first three quarters of the book were sappy and depressing at times. Elio's internal struggle was explain ad nauseam and I get tired of hearing about it. I must say the end of the book, from Rome on, was sweet and endearing. I loved hearing how they reconnected later in life and still cared for one another. I would recommend, especially if you have or plan on seeing the movie. You can decide for yourself! "
