Do you find it silly that certain races have their own language derived from English which is to be spoken only by them?

So this guy, Gary Shteyngart… he’s been around for a few years (his first book, The Russian Debutante’s Handbook, was published in 2003), and now is starting to gather some serious writer-momentum.* His latest, the Super Sad True Love Story pictured above, has just come out, and it’s nailing reviews.

What can you really say about coloured fish skeletons? Really. Japanese scientists have found a way to make a dead animal’s flesh and muscles transparent and then they discovered how to dye the skeletal systems various colours. Is it art? Is it science?

These would make interesting conversation pieces atop the mantle or put up by the hundreds on little shelves on the wall.
