The Idiot by Elif Batuman

1

Friends, this book is brilliant, hilarious and compelling.  I recommend it without reservation.

My galley copy there is banged up because I ripped it in half so I could bring the unfinished half on a trip, and what a delightful companion it was.

Come see me discuss the book with Elif herself at the LA Public Library downtown:

Monday March 20th

Free but get a ticket

Here are some choice excerpts from The Idiot:2  3  5

Patricia Lockwood highlighted one of my fav parts on Twitter:

Elif some years ago introduced me to the street cats of Istanbul: stanbul-cat

And showed me where to get corn:  turkey-corn

Now, I can return the favor in Los Angeles and YOU can join the fun:
