Praise

Praise for Absurdistan
 
“Shteyngart’s hilarious, virtuosic Absurdistan nails the tragicomedy of foreign relations. . . . Profoundly funny, genuinely moving and wholly lovable.”Time
 
“One of the funniest books in recent memory . . . Read Absurdistan for Shteyngart’s exuberant, wise, hilarious voice. . . . The novel is a long, funny, heartbreaking lament for home, whatever that means, and wherever that might be.”Los Angeles Times Book Review
 
“The first truly effective satire of the twenty-first century—one that hits the right cultural and political chords without coming off as sanctimonious or pedantic.”The New York Observer
 
“A hilariously warped mockery of geopolitics, media, and war; a Catch-22 for the age of short attention spans.”People
 
“A freakishly intelligent, verbally giddy, frequently flying ride.”Elle
 
Praise for Super Sad True Love Story
 
“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
 
“Shteyngart makes trenchant, often hilarious, observations about a fading empire.”O: The Oprah Magazine
 
“Appallingly funny but never less than personal, a tour de force of ridiculous appropriation and conflation.”The Boston Globe
