I think Aciman has a magic wand for a pen and an ability to depict and stir human emotions incredibly well and exceptionally sophisticatedly. With that being said, I believe you may be correct, Mikayla, in writing that "Find Me" could take place within those five years before Samuel's death. Unless it has different sections that skip long periods of time, just like "Call Me By Your Name". However, the cover of the book does say "A Novel." This leads me to think that we have to look at and read the novel as a separate piece from "Call Me By Your Name," even if we are visited by the same characters. Its events may not line up well with the events in "Call Me By Your Name", and it may be a new exploration into those characters, their lives, and the idea of "true love".
Whether we are correct in what we have already written here, I guess we have to play the waiting game until the novel's release to find out.(less)

This is a bit interesting. So I was doing a random Google search and came across this article. https://www.thenational.ae/arts-cultu...

Here, Aciman speaks about the true meaning behind that defining conversation between Elio and his father after Oliver's departure. Read this:

"What I meant [the father] to say is, ‘I came close to having this kind of love and I never found it – not even with your mother.’ [The text] doesn’t say, ‘not even with your mother’, but that’s what I intended.”

To answer your question, the divorce makes perfect sense! In "Find Me", Samuel could finally get the love story he has been searching for all this time.(less)

Even though I really hate it everytime the book I like having an instant sequel/prequel novel coming after the success of the movie adaptation, I will definitely give Find Me a try. (Imo, CMBYN's ending is already perfect, having a sequel is just.. a risky idea. If André didn't do it good, it could destroy everything..)

But anyway, in André we trust.

Update on 04 May 2019:
How thoughtful of André Aciman to show me the official cover of the sequel while I'm halfway through my first re-read of Call Me By Your Name. When I saw the news, I stared into the empty space for a whole minute, while taking deep breaths, then I finally looked at the cover and changed back and forth from swearing to sobbing, from screaming to quietly weeping because it's WONDERFUL, BEAUTIFUL, LOVELY and the synopsis doesn't sound half bad but I'm afraid more than ever th

The sequel to Call Me By Your Name is probably one of the most anticipated books in the literary world, and yes, it was worth the wait. The continuation of the story of Elio and Oliver examines the lives they've lived separately for the past twenty years, and it's genius how well Aciman re-captures the essence of these two. Untangling themes of loneliness, love, commitment, and the intangible idea of soul mates, Aciman writes a story that leaves his lovers.... well, you'll see. A haunting closur ...more

According to Vulture:

"In Find Me, Aciman will revisit the lives of Elio, Oliver, and another member of the Perlman family. Per FSG: “In Find Me, Aciman shows us Elio’s father Samuel, now divorced, on a trip from Florence to Rome to visit Elio, who has become a gifted classical pianist. A chance encounter on the train leads to a relationship that changes Sami’s life definitively. Elio soon moves to Paris where he too has a consequential affair, while Oliver, now a professor in northern New Engla

II. Cadenza: 3.5 stars. (95 pages, Elio POV)
III. Capriccio: 4 stars. (35 pages, Oliver POV)
IV. Da Capo: 2.5 stars. (13 pages, Elio POV with Oliver)

I don’t know how I feel about this. At first, I screamed in joy. Now, thinking on it, I’m unsure. As much as the ending ruined me & left me in a crying ball of depression, the ending was so perfect.
But will I read it? Hell yeah, I will!

Call Me By Your Name was very very close to perfect.

Obviously, I'm SUPER nervous about this. Hopefully, it's even better than the original (and maybe a happy ending, too? Please???)

What this put me in the mind of, more than anything, are the sequels and prequels to Twin Peaks - there is the same mix of endless, teasing anticipation, faithful tone that both embodies and guts the idea of fan service, sudden introduction of major characters from past and present, and canny method of bringing back a dead fan favorite (here, Mr. Perlman) - all executed with the confidence of a great artist who knows they can rely on the boundless affection their audience has for the main charac ...more

As a fan of the book and a bigger fan of the film, I was skeptical of a “Call Me By Your Name” sequel. I believed that a continuation of that story undermined its central themes and would be nothing more than fan service. “Find Me” (mostly) does not undermine those themes, (mostly) is not fan service, but also is not good.
