Elif Batuman stops by Books Are Magic to celebrate the paperback release of her New York Times Notable book of 2017, The Idiot!
With superlative emotional and intellectual sensitivity, mordant wit, and pitch-perfect style, Batuman dramatizes the uncertainty of life on the cusp of adulthood. The Idiot is a heroic yet self-effacing reckoning with the terror and joy of becoming a person in a world that is as intoxicating as it is disquieting.
Elif will be joined in conversation with Maris Kreizman, editorial director of Book of the Month Club, and author of the blog and book Slaughterhouse 90210.
This event is free!
