Elif Batuman: The Consolations of Philosophy

Elif Batuman’s first novel, The Idiot, was a finalist in the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction following university student Selin from Harvard to Hungary in pursuit of the elusive, fascinating Ivan. Today, Batuman discusses the highly anticipated sequel Either/Or, in which Selin continues her search for self-knowledge, and her quest to understand the point of romantic relationships, told in exquisite, mind-expanding prose.

Elif Batuman is appearing remotely.
