The New Yorker’s Elif Batuman talks about her debut novel, The Idiot. The coming-of-age story centers on Selin, a teenage Harvard freshman who navigates life with mordant wit and a keen eye for observation. Mary Karr, the best-selling author of The Liars' Club and fan of Batuman’s new work, guides the conversation.
