This Is The Author | Elif Batuman

“My book is based on the draft of a novel I wrote and gave up on over 15 years ago when I was in my early 20s and I only reread it in my thirties and at that point I had gotten a PhD in Literature and I spent time teaching undergraduates and I published a book of essays — which you definitely read or listen to as an audiobook — it’s called The Possessed.”
