Narrator Michael Stuhlbarg's rough, raspy voice lends a whispery intimacy to this sequel to CALL ME BY YOUR NAME. That book focused on 17-year-old Elio's relationship with Oliver, a graduate student. This sequel focuses first on Sami, Elio's father. It's 10 years later. Sami is on a train to Rome to visit Elio, now a world-famous concert pianist, when he finds himself drawn to a woman half his age. Sami soon understands that this encounter will change his life forever. In Part II, it's Elio's life unfolding, including his liaison with Michel, an older man. When Oliver ends his marriage to find Elio again, Stuhlbarg underplays their meeting. The distance in his delivery keeps the tension just below the surface. Stuhlbarg's elegant performance and Aciman's sensitive writing keep things touching without ever being sentimental. Wonderful listening. S.J.H.
