Summary

Summary

One of the 2002 New York Times Book Review 100 Notable Books for Fiction

Best-selling author Gary Shteyngart's exquisite fiction is met with a level of critical acclaim reserved for the very best in the field. In this startlingly provocative work, Russian immigrant Vladimir Girshkin searches for love and self-identity while interacting with a quirky set of acquaintances. "No novelist thinks more globally than Gary Shteyngart . [He] has figured out how to be funny and appalling at the same time, often in the same sentence."-Baltimore Sun

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As attuned to the exhilarating possibilities of the language as Martin Amis, as deadpan and funny as the young Evelyn Waugh.”  New York Times
“Rowdy, ribald, funny...this superb debut [is] the real thing.”  Esquire
“A brilliant, funny debut describing the vicissitudes of immigration today, as experienced by the hero, a young Russian-American.”  Harper’s Bazaar
“The rampaging narrative is festooned on every page with glittering one-liners, improbably apt similes, and other miniature pleasures.”  Elle
“If Henry Miller were Russian, this is a book he might have written.”  Time Out New York
