Presented by ELLIOTT BAY BOOK COMPANY. After three acclaimed novels, the New York Times bestseller and fan favorite Gary Shteyngart turns to memoir in Little Failure (Random House), a hilarious, candid, and deeply poignant account of his life so far. It’s impossible to get through a chapter of Gary Shteyngart’s first memoir without laughing: newly landed immigrants; unrequited love; American and Soviet absurdities; incomparable wit and word play; an audacious sense of fun; and, best of all, a lovable, stumbling, lusting hero: this time, Gary himself. But this is also Gary’s most mature, open-hearted, and emotionally rich book to date, telling the story of a man coming to terms with his legacy. Lavish early praise has come from Zadie Smith, Mary Karr, Carl Hiaasen, Adam Gopnik, Nathan Englander, and more. Gary Shteyngart is also the author of The Russian Debutante’s Handbook, and Super Sad True Love Story. His work has won the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize, the Stephen Crane Award and the National Jewish Book Award.
