gary shteyngart1 268x400 Super Sad True Love Story, Novel.

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. I have a signed copy, and am proud of myself. You should also probably get a copy. Why? Because Gary Shteyngart is absurd, and probably the funniest contemporary writer around.

It would be easy to write more on the man’s latest novel, and his person in general, but for time saving I’m going to refer you to his NYT interview, the writeup of SSTLS in Slate magazine, and the information that he’s probably still on a reading tour for the book, so get out and see him if you can.

I’ll leave you with this trailer, which, while strange, appropriately evokes the spirit of Mr. Shteyngart, and a link to his wikipedia page, which will confirm the strangeness.
