SHORTLISTED FOR THE WOMEN’S PRIZE FOR FICTION

«I loved it and could have read a thousand more pages of it. It presented this almost moment-by-moment experience of life, in a way that I just felt Batuman had so much control. There’s so much wit and pleasure in her writing you feel very comfortable being in the world she’s created.»

Emma Cline, author of THE GIRLS

Anmeldelser

«I loved it and could have read a thousand more pages of it. It presented this almost moment-by-moment experience of life, in a way that I just felt Batuman had so much control. There’s so much wit and pleasure in her writing you feel very comfortable being in the world she’s created.»

Emma Cline, author of THE GIRLS

«Elif Batuman is a writer whose byline creates a flutter of anticipation… If a dominant mode of her generation is knowing introspection, she writes with a bewildered outrospection that delights in the bathetic and the absurdIt’s a novel about being young and stupid that’s both wise and clever — and it’s a treat.»

Evening Standard

«Elif Batuman surely has one of the best senses of humour in American letters. The pleasure she takes in observing the eccentricities of each of her characters makes for a really refreshing and unique bildungsroman; one more fascinated with what's going on around and outside the bewildered protagonist, than what s going on inside her.»

Sheila Heti, author of HOW SHOULD A PERSON BE? and TICKNOR

«Each paragraph is a small anthology of well-made observations Batuman has a rich sense of the details of human attachment and lust.»

Dwight Garner, New York Times

«Beautifully written... a wry, funny coming-of-age story set at the dawn of email among a group of Harvard brainiacs too nerdy and self-involved to even think about sex, drugs and drinking.»
