Nazlı Koca presents 
The Applicant 
In conversation with Elif Batuman

Nazlı Koca joins Greenlight on our Fulton Street events stage to present her debut novel, The Applicant. Hilarious and troubling in equal parts and rendered in deeply original prose, The Applicant is an extraordinary dissection of a liminal life between borders and identities that follows Leyla, a Turkish twenty-something living in Berlin and scrubbing toilets at an Alice in Wonderland-themed hostel after failing her thesis, losing her student visa, and suing her German university in a Kafkaesque attempt to reverse her failure. Koca will be joined by Greenlight regular, Elif Batuman (author of The Idiot and Either/Or) for an event not to be missed.
