Overwhelmed by the challenges and possibilities of adulthood Selin turns up at Harvard to study linguistics and literature. She spends a lot of time thinking about what language can and cannot do and ponders profound questions about how culture and language shape who we are, how difficult it is to be a failed writer, and how baffling love is. Both clever and clueless, Batuman's heroine shows us just how messy it can be to forge a self.
