The author of the book that inspired the film sensation discusses 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.Each is unprepared for the consequences of their attraction, when, during the restless summer weeks, unrelenting currents of obsession, fascination, and desire intensify their passion and test the charged ground between them. Recklessly, the two verge toward the one thing both fear they may never truly find again: total intimacy. It is an instant classic and one of the great love stories of our time.

The novel won the Lambda Literary Award for Fiction, and has since been adapted to film. The film received a 10 minute standing ovation at the Sundance Film Festival and received 8 nominations at the Critics' Choice Awards. Don't miss the chance to meet the author of this literary sensation!
