André Aciman, author of Call Me by Your Name (the film adaptation of which earned four Oscar nominations), discusses his new book, Find Me. The sequel traces the lives of Oscar and Elio after that fateful Italian summer—Elio's involved with another older man, and Oscar has married a woman and become a professor. But the the longest passage follows Elio’s father, Samuel, during affair with a younger woman.
