We had the stars, you and I. And this is given once only.André Aciman, Call Me by Your Name: A Novel
Call me basic if you want to, but I love CMBYN (both the book and the film adaptation). It is full of passion, angst, remembrance, and regret—all the hallmarks of a devastating love story. You can’t really pigeonhole Aciman’s novel, though; it is just as much a philosophical treatise as it is a story of love and heartache.
Forewarning: I’m cheating because for the next several days I’ll have multiple quotes from the same book/work. Quotes are like potato chips—it’s hard to just pick one.
