JBF Opening Night Gary Shteyngart
Incredibly smart, incredibly funny, incredibly tragic, and therefore incredibly human. Nathan Hill

Like a twisted hybrid of Dostoevsky and Ali G with Lake Success, Shteyngart manages to satirize identity politics and vulture capitalism while tenderly probing the intricacies of love and parenthood. For all its snark, the novel is devastatingly poignant  and finally hopeful.  O: The Oprah Magazine

When his dream of the perfect marriage, the perfect son, and the perfect life implodes, a self-made Wall Street millionaire takes a cross-country bus trip in search of his college sweetheart and ideals of youth. In this biting, emotionally resonant novel very much of our times, two imperfect, brilliantly realized characters navigate the Shteyngartian chaos of their own making.

GARY SHTEYNGART is the New York Times bestselling author of the novels Super Sad True Love Story, Absurdistan, and The Russian Debutantes Handbook. His memoir, Little Failure, was named one of the best books of 2014 and was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.

LISA CHRISTIANSEN is a CBC reporter and radio personality.
