In the near future, America is crushed by a financial crisis and our patient Chinese creditors may just be ready to foreclose on the whole mess. Then Lenny Abramov, son of an Russian immigrant janitor and ardent fan of “printed, bound media artifacts” (aka books), meets Eunice Park, an impossibly cute Korean American woman with a major in Images and a minor in Assertiveness. Could falling in love redeem a planet falling apart?

“Wonderful . . . [combines] the tenderness of the Chekhovian tradition with the hormonal high jinks of a Judd Apatow movie.”
—MICHIKO KAKUTANI, The New York Times

“An intoxicating brew of keen-edged satire, social prophecy, linguistic exuberance, and emotional wallop . . . The American novel is safe in Gary Shteyngart’s gifted hands.”
—DAVID MITCHELL

 
“Exuberant and devastating . . . a wildly funny book that hums with the sheer vibrancy of Shteyngart’s prose . . . He can make you laugh and ache with a single line.”
—SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
