ENIGMA VARI­A­TIONS

Derby Telegraph - - BOOKSHELF -

by An­dre Aci­man, Faber & Faber, £12.99, ebook £7.99

HEART­BREAK, de­sire and loss are at the core of this novel, which charts a man’s great loves and af­fairs in five sto­ries.

Af­ter read­ing the first of those sto­ries I was slightly wor­ried Enigma Vari­a­tions would sim­ply re­visit the ground Aci­man al­ready cov­ered in his hugely suc­cess­ful de­but, Call Me By Your Name. How­ever, the novel then takes the reader on a jour­ney to New York, where the pro­tag­o­nist pur­sues re­la­tion­ships with both men and women that take a few rather un­ex­pected turns.
