Description

Gary Shteyngart (Super Sad True Love Story, Absurdistan, The Russian Debutante's Handbook) is best known for his tales of newly-landed immigrants, unrequited love and American and Soviet absurdities. In his new memoir, Little Failure, he turns his attention to his own story. With his trademark wit, wordplay and an audacious sense of fun, he shares what it means to be an immigrant, a grown-up, a son and an American.

“[Shteyngart is] one of his generation’s most original and exhilarating writers.”
– Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
