Hello, this is Elif Batuman. My new novel, Either/Or, is coming out with Penguin Press in May, 2022. It’s a sequel to my first novel, The Idiot, which was a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize. Both novels are set in the 1990s, which is when I learned everything I know about web design.

For a PR-type bio, see here. If you would like to know what my mortal envelope looks like (for now), here is a photo:
