Elif Batuman Wins Whiting Award

We’re proud to announce that Elif Batuman, along with nine other writers, has won a Whiting Award. You can read more about the very generous award at the Whiting Foundation. You should definitely read as much as possible by Elif, starting with The Possessed: Adventures with Russian Books and the People Who Read Themsigned copies are available at the n+1 store. Elif completists can reference an online list of her work. The list, however, is out of date: it most notably does not include the second part of her memoir “Summer in Samarkand,” published in Issue 9, and her recent review of Mark McGurl’s Program Era in the London Review of Books. Also, check out Elif’s blog. Congratulations Elif!
