Lake Success
A Book Talk with Author Gary Shteyngart and Suketu Mehta. Join us for a book talk celebrating the publication of Gary Shteyngarts new novel Lake Success. Shteyngart will be in conversation with Suketu Mehta, NYU Professor of Journalism. Narcissistic, hilariously self-deluded, and divorced from the real world as most of us know it, hedge-fund manager Barry Cohen oversees $2.4 billion in assets. Deeply stressed by an SEC investigation and by his three-year-old sons diagnosis of autism, he flees New York on a Greyhound bus in search of a simpler, more romantic life with his old college sweetheart. Meanwhile, his super-smart wife, Seemaa driven first-generation American who craved the picture-perfect life that comes with wealthhas her own demons to face. How these two flawed characters navigate the Shteyngartian chaos of their own making is at the heart of this piercing exploration of the 0.1 Percent, a poignant tale of familial longing and an unsentimental ode to what really makes America great.

AJHS is currently processing the records of the organization HIAS  The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, the organization that helped families from the former Soviet Union immigrate and resettle in the US. AJHS is also home to the records of several committees and movements working with and for Soviet Jewry since the 1960s.
