Faculty Book: André Aciman

André Aciman

Eight White Nights
(Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2010)

Aciman's novel examines the relationship of two twenty-something New Yorkers. Meeting at a swank Christmas Eve party, the two play out their romance over the course of the seven nights between that party and New Year's Eve. Aciman fills their romance with coffees, wealthy friends in Hudson County, and Rohmer film festivals, and he concocts ever more complex scenarios to dramatize the tension and uncertainty. André Aciman (Dist. Prof., GC) is on the doctoral faculty in comparative literature and French and is executive officer of the Ph.D. program in comparative literature.
