London Review Bookshop

Gary Shteyngart, born in Leningrad in 1972 and now resident in the US, is the author of three highly acclaimed novels, and an equally highly acclaimed memoir. Shteyngart will be here to read from and talk about his fourth novel Lake Success (Hamish Hamilton), a hilarious and troubling road-trip through the increasingly surreal landscape of Trump’s America. ‘Shteyngart hears America perfectly’ writes Richard Ford, ‘its fatuity, its poignant lament, its boisterous self-loathing. Its heartbeat. Reading him sometimes makes me want to scream - with recognition and with pure hilarity.’

Shteyngart will be in conversation with Adam Thirlwell, author of Lurid and Cute (Vintage).
