Details From a New Yorker Staff writer comes "The Idiot," a portrait of the artist as a young woman. With superlative emotional and intellectual sensitivity, mordant wit, and pitch-perfect style, Elif Batuman dramatizes the uncertainty of life on the cusp of adulthood. Her prose is a rare and inimitable combination of tenderness and wisdom; its logic as natural and inscrutable as that of memory itself. 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. Batuman's fiction is unguarded against both life's affronts and its beauty-and has at its command the complete range of thinking and feeling which they entail. Batuman will be in conversation with the Independent's senior assignment editor, Carrie Callaghan.
