This is one of those personality-packed novels which will no doubt be divisive. Packed with literary references, philosophical conundrums and the big questions of life, it’s a frequently hilarious and consistently engaging, unique book which I predict will be a big hitter this year.

What the Critics are Saying

'A charming, smart and completely idiosyncratic take on art, life and the gap between.'

Daily Mail Books To Look Out For 2022

'In 2018, Elif Batuman's witty campus novel, The Idiot, was a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize. . . . Now, Batuman returns with a sequel, Either/Or, that picks up during Selin's just-as-messy sophomore year. Expect a master course in snappy social observation.'
