The author of the gay coming-of-age novel "Call Me By Your Name," which served as the basis for the 2017 Oscar winning film, revealed the cover for the book's sequel, "Find Me."

Taking to Twitter Friday, André Aciman shared the image of "Find Me," the title of the sequel to "Call Me By Your Name." He told fans "Find Me" is where "you'll rediscover Elio and Oliver."




As previously reported, "Find Me" won't just focus on Elio (played by Timothee Chalamet in the film) and Oliver (played by Armie Hammer). According to the publisher's official synopsis, "Find Me" will find "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 England with sons who are nearly grown, suddenly finds himself contemplating a return visit to Europe," the synopsis adds.

It's also revealed Samuel (played by Michael Sthulbarg) will be a major character in "Find Me."

Speaking to Vulture, Aciman explained why he wanted to return to the world of "Call Me By Your Name."

"Though I created the characters and was the author of their lives, what I never expected was that they'd end up teaching me things about intimacy and about love that I didn't quite think I knew until I'd put them down on paper," he said. "The film made me realize that I wanted to be back with them and watch them over the years — which is why I wrote 'Find Me.' "

"Find Me" is out in October 2019.
