book.jpgSuper Sad True Love Story (Random House)

Can Lenny and Eunice find love in a futuristic America in which computer screens instantly and constantly reveal economic status and sexual "hotness" quotients? These desperate Americans — one Russian-Jewish, the other Korean — find the smallest window of pure affection, while writer Gary Shteyngart stirs up an incredibly energetic and funny prose-field around them. Influences? Think Henry Miller or Philip Roth.
