“Ridiculously witty and painfully prescient” (Time), Gary Shteyngart is the author of the culturally reflective novels The Russian Debutante’s Handbook, Absurdistan, and Super Sad True Love Story, which was named one of the best novels of the year by The New York Times Book Review. His other work includes the National Book Critics Award finalist Little Failure, a memoir of his experiences in the dramatically dissimilar worlds of uber-consumerist America and the perpetually deprived Soviet Union of his youth. His new novel, a penetrating exploration of the ultra-rich .1%, follows a billionaire hedge-fund manager who flees New York by bus in search of simpler life.
