André Aciman on how immigration and language shapes his characters

Dec 9, 2019

André Aciman is interviewed by Parul Sehgal of The New York Times, where he talks about how immigration and language shapes his characters, why he writes in language even though it is not his mother tongue, and the process around writing his first book at the age of 38.

He was at 92Y to read from Find Me, which returns readers to the world and characters of Call Me By Your Name, decades after their first encounter. Watch the full program
