Books We Love: “The Idiot” by Elif Batuman

Selin is a student at Harvard. The year is 1995. Email is a thing, but not yet a Thing. “The Idiot” is Selin’s story, and it is the debut novel of Elif Batuman, whose work we first read in n+1 and have followed obsessively ever since.

Selin is a student at Harvard. The year is 1995. Email is a thing, but not yet a Thing. “The Idiot” is Selin’s story, and it is the debut novel of Elif Batuman, whose work we first read in n+1 and have followed obsessively ever since.

The Idiot” tracks Selin’s first year at college and the summer that follows. She falls in love for the first time, stays up too late, behaves in mildly reckless ways, and discovers important truths about being a person. She is lovably odd and funny and—terrible word, but it must be said—”relatable.”

We loved Selin and we love this book. Maybe you will too.

Introducing Rauschenberg x Warby Parker

Robert Rauschenberg was one of the most influential American artists of the 20th century—a prolific and original genius across many mediums. His irrepressible creativity, spirit of collaboration, and lifelong activism inspired us to partner with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation on a limited-edition frame in four different color combinations.

His irrepressible creativity, spirit of collaboration, and lifelong activism inspired us to partner with the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation on a limited-edition frame in four different color combinations. Each pair of brightly hued crystal shades emulates a palette found in one of four paintings from the artist’s ROCI (Rauschenberg Overseas Culture Interchange) project. The name of the frame? ROCI, of course.
