“I think what I hope that they will personally like are the love stories in it, because I do believe in love, though I don’t like to use the word. The fundamental message of the book is just about love, really. But it’s also about time. It’s the fact that our lives are very short. I don’t believe in death. I think death’s a terrible thing. I don’t accept it, and we all have to fall away. What could we do knowing that life is going to end at some point? That’s the beauty of love. It goes to the end. Once we’re gone, we’re going to forget that we have loved people. That’s the worst of it. Not that people will forget us, that we won’t have a memory of anything. We won’t even have dreams to remember anything. Those are terrible things.”- Andre Aciman on Find Me
